Excerpt from Portinia, and Other Poems

It is with great diffidence that I submit this poem to a generous and beauty-loving public.

Not that I fear the criticisms of those with eyes alert to spy and detect errors in my vain and feverish endeavors to consort with the divine Muses of poesy, and soar into heights sublime, on the semi-callow wings of my poetic imagination. My greatest regret is, that I have not more artfully developed my plot, a rich and delicate fabric (I have made the fabric more beautiful than the garment). My setting or cast, therefore, I consider exquisitely unique in many of its aspects. This poetic romance might be compared to a strong theme in a musical symphony. Not satisfactorily developed in detail and counter-point, "Portinia," to those in consonance with the higher and diviner spirit of love and beauty, is a poem possessing the elements of a true soul.

While it may be fraught with many technical weaknesses, nevertheless, dear reader, the king of day, the sun, from the hands of God, has spots upon it, - and the queen of night, the moon, oft has horns and a bad complexion, when beheld from certain points of view.
