Excerpt from Songs From the Sunny South

It is an interesting period that in which the Boy gives way to Man, as the teens yield to the twenties, and there comes a restlessness, an Athenian rush for all new things, until sets in the reaction and the inevitable seeking back for the Past so hopefully deserted. It is this epoch, at one and the same time the term and the starting point of my life, that is upon the following pages fragmentarily transcribed. It may interest some to follow out in myself the perhaps feeble and shadowy reflection of their own earlier moments.

There is much perhaps in this Volume that may seem out of place in publicity, but it is difficult to make extracts quite alone and unassisted without at times unconsciously transgressing. It must be remembered that they are more portions of a journal of thought and inner life than distinct and individual pieces, and apparent contradiction only shows various phases thro which the changeful mind is ever passing.

The religious tone of some of these Poems may be objected to in a purely secular Volume, but to write in solitude as these verses were written is to write religiously. It would be almost impossible to escape the contagion of worship breathing thro Nature were there indeed any gain or object in that escape.
