Book review

Excerpt from My Adopted Country: A Poem, in Three Parts

Lives there a hope within my inmost breast
Of future happiness, howe'er imprest?
If I desire for all, as should all men,
The greatest good to all, why should my pen
Withhold that hope, or rather not express
What I desire that all men should possess?
Why should I, when by God and Nature taught,
If not quite classic, not give vent to thought?
Opposed to thraldom, why should I forbear
To spread my thoughts, that fellow-men may share?
For if I think, however strange it seems,
These may man benefit - though such, as dreams,
May prove fallacious - not what I desire -
Still I attention crave, as I aspire
To aid my fellow-men, and nobly strive,
Grateful for freedom, under which I thrive.
Oft lowly plants their fragrance spread around
Mute thanks to him who tills the garden ground.
