Four poems (from a self-selected sequence of 10) published in 1922 by American Imagist poet John Gould Fletcher, in American Poetry 1922: A Miscellany [Harcourt Brace & Co., New York], available from Project Gutenberg. Their common theme is our deep need to pass on and augment both remembrance and art, through poetry and song, in order to give meaning to the human condition.
