|William McKinley (death: poetry).|
The poem below appears in a special supplemental section of the magazine titled “A McKinley Memorial.”
The poem below is accompanied on the same page by a photograph of McKinley.
Our chieftain rests from sorrow and from pain,
His mortal eyes are sealed with pleasant peace;
Ours is the grief and sorrow, his the gain.
We filled his days and nights with sober care;
Now, by God’s grace, his happy spirit breathes
With his dear children a serener air.
