Poems of Two Worlds, Containing the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (an Allegory), Oo-La-Ita (a Legend of Minnesota), and Other Historical, Legendary, Allegorical, Humorous, Moral and Spiritual Poems (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Poems of Two Worlds, Containing the Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (an Allegory), Oo-La-Ita (a Legend of Minnesota), And Other Historical, Legendary, Allegorical, Humorous, Moral and Spiritual Poems The title, poems OF Two worlds, was selected, first, because some Of the productions were written in the Old world of Europe, and others in the new world Of America. And next, because in accord with my belief in a future existence, I desire that my productions should not only serve a good purpose in this mundane sphere, but also point and lead to a higher, a grander and brighter life beyond. No one, I think, can justly complain of a want Of poetic justice or moral tendency in what is herein placed before, the reader. While I have on the one hand, written for the present hour, I have on the other, kept the great future steadily in contemplation. Amongst the poems will be found several acrostics, and though these were written to please friends, yet it is hoped that apart from this motive they will be found to be of sufficient merit to justify their publication. It should also be Observed that there are some acrostics that are marked as such, while others that are of an acrostic character are not so distinguished by their headlines. There is one poem, the subject Of which, so far as known, has never been treated of by any previous writer. I refer to The Birth and Adventures Of Santa Claus. While it is largely Of an imaginative character, yet it is believed to be of that kind that will find favor not only amongst children, but also with other and maturer minds.
