Excerpt from Sunshine and Shadows
Joseph S. Deramus, author of this volume of verse, is a poet in the highest sense of the word. He has the imagination, depth of feeling, and knowledge of life which, combined with metrical skill, enable him to make a strong appeal to the huma... n heart. The cynicism of modern thought is foreign to his nature, for the love of the Great Creator is in his heart and he can recognize His work on every hand. His understanding is keen, his sympathies broad and deep. He has the true poet's sense of the vital element in common things, and sings of them naturally' and fondly. He is not enslaved by conventional rules of diction, but has a happy faculty of easy and familiar expres sion. His poems are of the kind that high-minded men memorize for repetition to their fellows the kind that mothers read to their children with mutual understanding and benefit.
Nearly all of the poems collected in these pages have appeared hitherto in well-known newspapersand magazines. In the publication of this, his first book of verse, my friend deramus makes a lively bid for more general approval of his work, by embodying it in a form of greater permanence. May this laudable undertaking prove successful and these poems, possessing indubitable human interest, meet with the approbation they deserve!
