Abraham Lincoln Poems

    Gen. Lees invasion of the North written by himself-

    In eighteen sixty three, with pomp,
    and mighty swell,

    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.

    A sweet plaintive song did I hear,
    And I fancied that she was the singer-
