Abraham Lincoln, Foully Assassinated, April 14th, 1865, from
Funeral Oration by Bishop Simpson..
HE filled the Nation's eye and heart,
An honored, loved, familiar name; So much a brother, that his fame Seemed of our lives a common part.
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His worth-like health or air-could find No just appraisal till withdrawn.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. Halpine.
