|William McKinley (poetry).|
|James A. Garfield; Abraham Lincoln.|
WHERE Garfield slumbers and where Lincoln sleeps,
Renowned in patriot story,
Another chieftain dreams his peaceful dream,
His dream of deathless glory.
There, shrined among the universal brave,
Whose sacred dust we treasure,
The Lord of Hosts crowns him with martyr palm,
And fame in fadeless measure.
His has become a rare, illustrious name,
To shine, till time is hoary,
With Garfield’s and with Lincoln’s unforgot,
For this Republic’s glory.
