The Setting Sun

Excerpt from The Setting Sun: A Poem in Seven Books The next great principle of poetry is, that it should illustrate the world of nature and of revelation, and the vast range of human interests which are about us, - not merely imaginary creations, and things remote from, and opposed to, actual life. There are other important principles of poetry, both as regards quality and construction, but I will only add that it must be healthy, not morbid, in its tone; and varied and interesting, not tedious, in its character; resembling, in short, a pleasant journey with cheerful society through a diversified country, where the eye and ear are delighted every moment with something beautiful, new, or interesting, -a shady lane, a sheet of water, an old ruin, a hanging wood, the carol of a lark, a cheerful homestead, or a happy group of children.
