|William McKinley (death: poetry).|
Peace!—mourn no more the martyr’s fate!
Death came—though by the hand of hate,
His faithful life to vindicate,
His name to set apart.
No more assailed, misunderstood,
He sleeps where love his grave hath strewed,
Safe sentinelled by gratitude,—
The memory of the heart.
