Excerpt from The Trumpeter of Säkkingen: A Song From the Upper Rhine Five years, my merry song, have now rolled by Since thou didst venture thy first course to run, A simple strolling minstrel's chance to try, But no great laurels SO far hast thou won. In circles Of prosaic breathing mortals NO praise was given thee of any kind Where formal stiffness bars life's glowing portals, Thou and thy kindred can no quarter find. And in the coteries of hoops and laces Few were the readers, fewer still the praises. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
