Trumpet in Adversity: And Other Poems

Excerpt

Trumpet in Adversity is the fourth collection of poems I have prepared for publication. The first was Songs of Jewish Rebirth (New York, 1921); the second, Joyful Jeremiads: A Collection of Legends, Folk Tales, Children's Poems and Other Light Verse (San Francisco, 1926); the third, The Bridge Between Two Lands and Other Poems of Faith, published in the Temple Emanu-El Pulpit (San Francisco, 1929). The majority of the poems in these three collections, with the exception of the "Jeremy Jingles" in Joyful Jeremiads have been included in the present volume, in addition to the poems written since 1929.

A considerable number of the poems in Trumpet in Adversity have appeared in various Jewish and non-Jewish periodicals, to the editors of which I am indebted for permission to reprint them. Among these are the New York Times (Fortitude and Prayer in Adversity); the New York Sun (Proclaim Ye Liberty); Unity (The Voice of God and The Bridge Between Two Lands); the Freeman (Look at the Sun); the Menorah Journal (Once an AbbÉ Asked a Rabbi); London Jewish Guardian (Habeebah); Bnai Brith Magazine (To Sir Israel Gollancz and Sir Sidney Lee); the American Israelite (Cincin nati) . . .
