From the Logan Banner of Logan, WV, comes this poem by an unknown author printed on July 20, 1923:
A MOUNTAIN CABIN
The roof of rough rived boards,
The walls hewn logs and chinking;
Over windows vining gourds,
Round gourds for festive drinking.
A wood hinged batten door
With latch, and string for greeting;
A near to nature floor,
Stone hearth for friendly meeting.
An open fire place wide,
And black pot hooks showing;
No art the crude to hide—
Shelter when winds are blowing.
This house quite humble stands,
But love wrought in its building;
Great wealth is not in lands
And homes are not gilding.
