Excerpt from Rude Rural Rhymes You know the Quaker poet writes of barefoot boys and their delights, of barefoot boys with cheek of tan and summer hills o'er which they ran - at tractive pictures for the jaded, in rural rhymes that have mine faded; but of their truth I'm not persuaded. If at my side some potent fairy, with Wings and wand both waving airy, should stop and offer me the jovs which appertain to barefoot boys, I'd say What mischief are you brewing? Don't vamp me, dear; there's nothing doing. Go. Off and tempt some other man to be a boy with eh-eek of tan. My tan was localized in speckles; I was a bosr with cheek of freckles, legs scratched with thorns and stuck with stubble and bruised with stones and other rubble. I had no money when I would have. I had no hank}r when I should have. I loved the pretty school marm misses, but primer kids got 3 the kiss-es, or grown up lads who had the pluck; and hall grown bayswerc out of luck. Too many rocks waylaid ny toe; the new nails took too long to grow. The thorns of life Do would prick me, too many 1a(: ki-nives used to nick me, too many other boys could lick me. Too many bosses ue;t me harried; I have but one since I got married. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Rural Rhymes God made the country. Therefore it is that the poets, whose hearts, like the olden Bards, are fresh and simple, and susceptible to all pure inspirations, are they whose lives have been nearest to Nature. If, in this volume, there shall be less of Art than the professional critic may demand, there will, at least, be no bookish affectations. The ingenuous reader will not be tantalized with a display of verbal pyro technics, brilliant, but cold and cheerless; neither will any dramatic spasms or hysterical extravagances tempt the vitiated appetite of the worn and wicked worldling.

Excerpt from Rude Rural Rhymes You know the Quaker poet writes of barefoot boys and their delights, of barefoot boys with cheek of tan and summer hills o'er which they ran - attractive pictures for the jaded, in rural rhymes that have mine faded; but of their truth I'm not persuaded. If at my side some potent fairy, with wings and wand both waving airy, should stop and offer me the joys which appertain to barefoot boys, I'd say "What mischief are you brewing? Don't vamp me, dear; there's nothing doing. Go off and tempt some other man to be a boy with cheek of tan." My tan was localized in speckles; I was a boy with cheek of freckles, legs scratched with thorns and stuck with stubble and bruised with stones and other rubble. I had no money when I would have. I had no hanky when I should have. I loved the pretty school marm misses, but primer kids got all the kisses, or grown up lads who had the pluck; and half grown boys were out of luck. Too many rocks waylaid my toe; the new nails took too long to grow. The thorns of life too would prick me, too many jackknives used to nick me, too many other boys could lick me. Too many bosses Kept me harried; I have but one since I got married. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
