Abraham Lincoln Life Poems
- 1. To Rosa
You are young, and I am older;
You are hopeful, I am not-
Enjoy life, ere it grow colder-
Pluck the roses ere they rot.
- 2. The Bear Hunt
A wild-bear chace, didst never see?
Then hast thou lived in vain.
Thy richest bump of glorious glee,
Lies desert in thy brain.
- 3. My Childhood's Home I See Again
My childhood's home I see again,
And sadden with the view;
