Abraham Lincoln, an Horatian Ode by R. H. Stoddard....
Abraham Lincoln, Foully Assassinated, April 14th, 1865, from
HE filled the Nation's eye and heart,
His towering figure, sharp and spare,
Was with such nervous tension strung, As if on each strained sinew swung The burden of a people's care.
His changing face what pen can.draw?
Pride found no idle space to spawn
Her fancies in his busy mind;
His worth-like health or air-could find No just appraisal till withdrawn.
He was his Country's-not his own!
Her flag upon the heights of power,
Charles G. Arpine.
