“Is the Sunshine All Gone?”—William McKinley

 

[Written for the American.]

“Is the sunshine all gone,” from this world of sorrow,
     Were the words of our hero so brave and so true.
Yes; never again shall the sun of tomorrow
     Bless his eyes with the sight of the trees and the dew.

But far in a realm of Life Everlasting
     The sun is still shining around the White Throne,
Where saints in their glory are beaming and basking,
     And the gloom of this earth shall be never more known.

     Washington, Sept. 13, 1901.
