John Greenleaf Whittier (1807–1892).  The Poetical Works in Four Volumes.  1892.
 
At Sundown
James Russell Lowell
 
FROM purest wells of English undefiled
None deeper drank than he, the New World’s child,
Who in the language of their farm-fields spoke
The wit and wisdom of New England folk,
Shaming a monstrous wrong. The world-wide laugh        5
Provoked thereby might well have shaken half
The walls of Slavery down, ere yet the ball
And mine of battle overthrew them all.
