Davis Edward Marshall

Excerpt from In Old Kentucky: A Story of the Bluegrass and the Mountains Founded on Charles T. Dazeys Play She laughed, now, not at the song, which was purely automatic, but in sheer joy of living on that wonderful June day in those marvellous Kentucky mountains. Their loneliness did not depress her indeed, to her, they were not lonely, but peopled by a host of lifelong friends who had greeted her at birth, and would, she had every reason to suppose, speed her when her end came. Their majesty did not overwhelm her, although she felt it keenly, and respected it and loved it with a certain dear, familiar awe. And everywhere about her was the Spring. Laurel blossomed at the trails sides, filling the whole air with fragrance the tardier blueberry bushes crowding low about it had begun to show the light green of their bursting buds young ferns were pushing through the coverlet of last autumns leaves which had kept them snug against the winters cold, and were beginning to uncurl their delicate and wondrous spirals maple and beech were showing their new leaves. The air was full of bird-notes - the plaintively pleading or exultantly triumphant cries of the mating seasons joy and passion.
