Poems of the Prairies (Classic Reprint) Buchkatalog
Excerpt from Poems of the Prairies
This book has been kindly noticed by the press and favorably received by the people. Good verses may be written here as well as elsewhere. "Labor omnia vincit" is the author's motto -
The end obtains."
Certainly it is just on the part of "critics" to require that the "Poems of the Prairies" be perfect, - not containing a faulty line, word, or syllable. It would seem strange if here, on the frontier, a volume of verses should not be written more perfect in all things than the most finished productions of Tennyson, the poet of ease and leisure. One who toils for his daily bread, when he snatches a moment from labor in which to write, is expected to surpass, in the beauty of his diction, the most polished of the poets of ancient or modern days, or he must be lashed by a set of fools! Pope says: -
"Let such teach others who themselves excel,
And censure freely who have written well."
