Abraham Lincoln Poems

  • 1.
    Gen. Lees invasion of the North written by himself-

    In eighteen sixty three, with pomp,
    and mighty swell,
  • 2.
    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.
  • 3.
    A sweet plaintive song did I hear,
    And I fancied that she was the singer-
    May emotions as pure, as that song set a-stir
    Be the worst that the future shall bring her.
  • 4.
    Here, where the lonely hooting owl
    Sends forth his midnight moans,
    Fierce wolves shall o'er my carcase growl,
    Or buzzards pick my bones.
  • 5.
    A wild-bear chace, didst never see?
    Then hast thou lived in vain.
    Thy richest bump of glorious glee,
    Lies desert in thy brain.
  • 6.
    Canto 1

    My childhood's home I see again,
    And sadden with the view;
  • 7.
    Abraham Lincoln is my nam[e]
    And with my pen I wrote the same
    I wrote in both hast and speed
    and left it here for fools to read
  • 8.
    Abraham Lincoln,
    His hand and pen:
    He will be good but
    God knows When.

Emily Dickinson Poem
No Passenger was known to flee'
 by Emily Dickinson


No Passenger was known to flee-
That lodged a night in memory-
That wily-subterranean Inn
Contrives that none go out again-
