An Ongoing Dialogue: North in South
The allure of the Low country can been seen in this poem a native of St. Helena, Annie Glover, wrote while in the North:
|Home of the gray moss and Live Oak,
Land of sunshine and light,
Free from the city's grime and smoke,
Free from the city's horrors of the night,
Land where the mocking bird sings on the wind,
To you may my heart forever cling.
The result of this dialogue are the continued actions and artifacts of the people of Charleston and the Low
country. Today there is a continued discussion as northern ideas fuse with southern views in a continual process
that challenges the geographic bounds of culture.
