Excerpt from Lincoln Poetry: Poets, Surnames Beginning With K; Excerpts From Newspapers and Other Sources
Land of history and sunshine, storied mystery and moonshine, Land of Bluegrass, mountains, knobs; Beauty land of snowy dogwood, bursting redbud, mountain laurel; Glory la... nd of Boone and Finley, Harrod's Fort, Blue Licks heart throbs! Promised land of pioneering lonely log home in a clearing, Land of do-without and danger, ringing - axe and bright-barreled gun! Land of independent thinking, Where men e'er have dared to differ; Haven of all selfmade exiles questing freedom - barring none; Tolerant land of Christian people Catholic, Wesleyan, and Baptist, Campbellite and Presbyterian all who seek the Master's way; Land of circuit - riding preachers, spirit - stirring great camp meetings, where the roots of faith grew deep and strong into the human clay! Home of Transylvania College, bringing light across the mountains; Lovely land of Stephen Foster, calling forth his gift of song; Home of orators and statesm-eh Henry Clay, Jeff Davis, Brandeis; Birthplace of the greatest, Lincoln nation-saviour, righting wrong! Land of handicrafts and ballads, hot elections, and set-running; bluegrass pastures, sleek fat cattle, saddle horses, thoroughbred; rolling fields of corn, tobacco; white-fenced show farms, and the Derby; ever-changing parorama sameness only for the dead! Home of earn-learn school, Ber-ea.
