Nebraska. I. 8. A., Karth.
Many thousands read In Wednesday
evening's Bee the poem "Nebraska." ap
pearing in the April Issue of the National
MaMrlne and signed "Carl K. Marring."
It la a good poem. :t rhyme and
rhythm and meter are perfect. It awing
alreng In tuneful ami Inspiring cadence.
It Is a song to the greatness and loveli
ness and glory of Nebraska, the beauty
of Its women, the charm of Its climate,
the worth of Its men; it makea all who
live here proud that they live here,
and It makes all who don't live
here sorry that they don't live here.
It Is a poem probably written by a man
who waa born a poet, wha did not acquire
poetry nor have poetry thrust upon him.
The signature of "Carl E. Herring"
naturally suggested the well known
Omaha attorney. True, no one had aver
suspected Mm of poetry. He had con
cealed wtll his secret. But the Inspiration
of hie subject wss enough excuse for
Pegasus to break down the doors of any
confining stable and aoar to the heights
with the attorney upon his back.
And so Mr. Herring of Omaha waa pro
claimed to the world as the author of
"Nebraaka." Scarcely waa th paper In
the hands cf the people when congratu
lations began to flood In upon htm. It a
a mighty good poem and the congratula
tions were sincere
What did Mr. Herring do?
He sat right down and wrote a note to
The Pee as follows:
To the Editor ef The Bee: That the un
known Psrd who penned the lines. "Ne
braska," nwv never call me to a ruile
naakenlng. please conect the notion that
1 ever wrote, thought or clsimcd to write
a poem, and more particularly the poem
aforesaid. CAIU, K. I IK R RING.
That la what lie lld, renouncing the
Klory which he knew to be another's and
retiring from the glorious company of the
poets to the rank of ordinary mortal.
And he did It voluntarily, lie might
have winked at circumstance; he might
have quieted the (till small voice of con
science by saying. "I never aald I wrote
the poem. Ia it my fault if my nama Is
signed to It?"
Thus he might have spoken to himself.
And when friends congratulated and ad
mired he might have ahrugged his ahoul
dera and aaid, "Oh. that la nothing, really
nothing." giving the Impression that ha
could do far better If he cared to half try.
But ha did none of that. Ha deoided
that honesty Is better than poe'ry and
sternly puit from himself the oup of fame
whloh waa held brimming to his lips.
RomewK ,ra there must be another Carl
K. Herring. Tha, wrong herring has been
dragged across this trail.
