To Mrs. McKinley
Oh, brave and loving wife, the nation’s grief
Is naught to thine, but our warm sympathy
Goes out in deep affection unto thee,
For we had learned to love him in the brief,
Bright time we knew his life’s wise ministry.
Our hearts are one in great bereavement now—
The nation’s heart and thine are one, indeed.
No barrier of party or of creed.
In unison of grief our heads we bow,
And every heart weeps with thee in thy need.
