Poetry and Prose free pdf Excerpt from Poetry and Prose The author of the following poems, born at Jedburgh in 1838, entered at an early age the employment of the Lothian family, and has now for nearly twenty years acted as custodian of the beautiful ruins of Jedburgh Abbey, in which capacity his combined urbanity to visitors and enthusiasm for Border lore have marked him out as a local celebrity. The poems represent the gatherings of years- and as many of those years have been spent by the author literally beneath the shade or within the precincts of the Abbey, so it will be found that his muse has never strayed far from home in her search for themes of poetry. The old Border town of Jedburgh- the vale of Jedburgh- the neighbouring hill of Ruberslaw and the neighbouring rivers of Tweed, Teviot, Rule- a few old-world local characters, - these go far towards completing the list of his subjects- a narrow field, but one which is saved from suspicion of scantiness - first, by the abounding natural beauties which it comprises and for which the poet has so marked an affinity, and, secondly, by the stretching background or perspective of a rich historic past. So that the singer, wandering by Jed, dwells with delight not only on its sylvan banks and ruddy scaurs, but also on the strategy of the Good Sir James at Linthaughlee, the assault of Desse upon Fernihirst, and the perilous ride of the fair hapless Mary, from a house still standing in the town, to visit her wounded subject-lover at Hermitage. I have, perhaps, said enough to show that the themes dealt with in this little book are worthy to exercise any poet whomsoever. What of the poet's skill in treating of those themes? In attempting to answer such a question, one prefers to keep the modest side of the mark. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
