A Few Poems on Hawaii, China, and America free pdf Excerpt from A Few Poems on Hawaii, China, and America The following poems, selected from a large number, recited on the platform or contributed to the press, may interest some readers. The writer has twice visited Hawaii- viewed all her great extinct craters, active volcanoes, and other physical wonders- spent many pleasant days among her earlier missionaries- seen much of their work, and the later Christian, and other civilization of the islands. He resided in Washington before, and during the first years of the Civil War- so that the poem on the Capitol describes much of what he actually saw and experienced. He has also spent nearly twenty years in China, mingled much among her people, and been a diligent student of her literature and life. The following original metrical paraphrases of a few of her classical odes, based almost entirely on the labors of Chinese scholars, are presented as giving a fair idea of the scope, power, and purity of Chinese poetry, as well as a true expression of Chinese sentiment and belief. Chinese literature, in the opinion of the undersigned, is generally very much underestimated, as are all the great elements of her enduring civilization. Most writers on the ancient sources of philosophy, ethics, political economy, and religion, either ignore China altogether, or treat her contribution to human thought with indifference, levity, ridicule, or contempt, as unworthy of serious study.
