Abraham Lincoln Night Poems
- 1. The Suicide's Soliloquy
Here, where the lonely hooting owl
Sends forth his midnight moans,
Fierce wolves shall o'er my carcase growl,
Or buzzards pick my bones.
- 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;
