Excerpt from Poems of the South, and Other Verse

The Southern States, inheriting a Wesley and a Whitefield, caught English oratory in all its intensity, but drew from the fountainhead only a small degree of poetry. The inheritance was strong for a drift but not powerful enough for the current of a main chan nel. Hence the Old South was oratorical rather than poetic, the fervent expansion of conviction rather than close-gathered sentiment. Even after the war no poet arose to chant a deathless ode to desolation. It was still the orator, a Brady's passion tearing its way through the cold and indifferent atmosphere of the East. But the songs of the broader South were to be sung, and by a poet from the throbbing land of Mar shall, of Menifee and of Clay, a land where the grass waves 'blue in the golden air of noon, where the South's own fun-loving bird in mad minstrelsy of joy pours forth in sweet mockery the song that every bird has sung, feathered Shakespeare, singing every hymn to stir it into the melting pot of his own glory. Out of this land came Visscher, the poet, with no absorbing lyre, songs caught from other singers, but melodied of himself and harmonied by nature's tunes that in hon eyed blossoms lie hid and hushed till some loving hand doth pluck them forth.
