Overview

Excerpt from Soul Shadows

This little volume of poems goes forth as a tribute to the memory of Charles Gould Beede, whose soul passed through the deep shadows October 7, 1906, and whose literary utterances record the light that lessened the gloom that long hung over his house of clay.

The devotional spirit that pervades these selections is breathed to us not alone by the unselfish activity that characterized the author, but by the mantle of loving and poetical affinity that rested once upon the husband and wife, and now rests in double measure upon the bereaved companion, whose efforts are bending themselves to the production of his more valuable literary works.

Coming, as it does, to a restless if not a turbulent age, it must first find its friends among those who knew something of the author and his work, either by person or the occasional publication. Later it will find its way into the lives of those who of necessity live out their days in the minor rather than the major key; and to all who face the gathering shadows of bodily or mental affliction there will be a word, if they can but see it, that will make the world brighter by these songs.
