For all my wisdom and grace of mind Gave her no delight at all, in very truth, But ever and anon she spoke of the giant strength Of Willard Shafer, and of his wonderful feat Of lifting a traction engine out of the ditch One time at Georgie Kirby's. It's worth reading and rereading. Merritt, Tom Metcalf, Willie Meyers, Doctor Meyers, Mrs. But there was the old, old problem: Should it be celibacy, matrimony or unchastity? They say the ashes of my namesake Were scattered near the pyramid of Caius Cestius Somewhere near Rome.

It extols the simple joys of life, and finds satisfaction enough in that. The Spoon River of the title is the name of an actual river in Illinois, but the town combines Lewistown, where Masters grew up, and Petersburg, where his grandparents lived. I Trainor, the druggist, a miser of chemicals, Killed while making an experiment, Lived unwedded. Where are Ella, Kate, Mag, Lizzie and Edith, The tender heart, the simple soul, the loud, the proud, the happy one? The bar association sang my praises In a high-flown resolution.
