Transcript THE ZEPHYR Monthly Bulletin of the Outdoor" Nature Club of Houston, Texas. January, 1926 Vol. 3, No. 1. There Is no rhyme that is half so sweet As the song of the wind in the rippling wheat; There is no meter that's half so fine As the lilt of the brook under rock and vine; And the loveliest lyric I ever heard Was the wildwood strain of a. forest bird. -- Madison Cawein. A Gall to Poets and' Poetry Lovers. As a means of gathering together some of the beautiful and impressive thoughts inspired by nearness to the earth and .its fruits, and for the purpose of stimulating interest in the study of nature, the conservation of our valuable native flora and fauna, and the preservation of important scenic areas: The Outdoor Nature Club of Houston, Texas, offers prizes of $15.00 and §10.00, respectively, for the best and second best nature poems submitted under the rules given below. The theme of the poem may be sunset among the hills, the mockingbird's moonlight serenade, wild flowers of woodland and prairie, the mystery and charm of spring, Nature's motherly provision for her wild children, the sublime solitude of the forest, or any subject that would place it under the classification of nature poetry. All poems must have been hitherto unpublished. No poem shall exceed twenty-four lines in length. The author must be a resident of Texas or one of the adjoining states: Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. Members of the Outdoor Nature Club are not eligible to compete in this contest. All poems received shall remain the property of the club, to be used as the club shall later decide-, but authors will be given credit for all poems published. ' The contest will close on May 1st, and prize winners will be announced on or before June 1st, 1926. All manuscripts should be addressed to- Mrs. A. J. James, 3003 Travis Street, Houston, Texas. Names of judges for the contest will be announced at a later date. This is the first contest of this kind to be sponsored by the Outdoor Nature Club, and because of various factors that had to be taken into consideration, it was decided to limit the territory from which verses would be received to Texas and the.bordering states. If results justify, a similar contest, on a larger 'scale, in which nature lovers of the whole nation will be invited to participate, will probably be a part -of the next year's program. At the gates of the forest, the surprised man of the world is forced to leave his city estimates of great and small, wise ana foolish. .... Cities give not the human senses room enough. -- Emerson.
