Dead White Poets Society by WinchellV

Question 12

From the sublime to the ridiculous, what naturalized American "POET" wrote the lines, "It takes a heap o' livin' in a house t' make it home, / A heap o' sun and shadder, an' ye sometimes have t' roam / Afore ye really 'preciate the things the things ye lef' behind, / And hunger for 'em somehow, with 'em allus on yer mind"? Dorothy Parker once quipped, "I'd rather flunk my Wasserman Test than read a poem by [this man]."
