Masters, Edgar Lee: Spoon River Anthology - Hamilton Greene

Portre of Masters, Edgar Lee

Spoon River Anthology - Hamilton Greene (English)

  I was the only child of Frances Harris of Virginia

  And Thomas Greene of Kentucky,

  Of valiant and honorable blood both.

  To them I owe all that I became,

  Judge, member of Congress, leader in the State.

  From my mother I inherited

  Vivacity, fancy, language;

  From my father will, judgment, logic.

  All honor to them

  For what service I was to the people!
