Idle Moments Containing Emancipation and Other Poems

Excerpt from Idle Moments Containing Emancipation and Other Poems A serious injustice is done an author when his friends and enemies fail to read his preface. I trust that my friends may at least do me the justice to read why I venture to send these poems forth to the public. To attempt to write poetry is very generally considered an indisputable evidence of a mild form of insanity, and yet I presume to trust that such is not my case. No man should trust himself before the public unless he has written something that the public ought to hear, or some thing that the public wants to hear, and he himself should not constitute that public. As to the first, I dare not say; as to the second, many have so expressed themselves. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
