I guess it was around two years ago that I came across a gold mine where the only digging to be done was turning the page. That is correct! It was a gold mine of words, original unseen poetry, inside two yellow-stained, old diaries that date between 1850 and 1893. I started reading the diaries and found myself back in time; I was walking with them, seeing what they saw, feeling what they felt, and meeting the queen. Because I am an avid lover of poetry and because of the way I felt after reading the diaries, I decided I had to share the gold with everyone. So here we are, two years later: Journey Back in Time, Volume 2 of 3. Each volume will hold over one hundred poems each. I want you to feel how they felt, see what they saw, hear what they said, live where they lived. So, as soon as you open the book to the first page, be ready. You might cry, you might laugh, you will be sad, and you will be happyvery religious timesbut together well go on a journey. A Journey Back in Time, Volume 2 of 3: Unseen Poetry from the 19th Century.
The words are kept in their original format from the diaries, and misspellings are the same as in the original. I did not want to take anything away from the words or feeling they wanted us to hear by making corrections. What you will be reading is the original diary format. This is how they talked and wrote back then.
