Ode by Henry Timrod, published in his Poems (1873). Written during the Civil War, it embodies the author's observations on the “small sphere” of a single boll of cotton, which symbolizes the cotton fields of the South in their “soft white fibres,”That, with their gossamer bands,Unite, like love, the sea-divided lands.
