Abraham Lincoln Sweet Poems
- 1. To Linnie
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.
- 2. 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.
- 3. My Childhood's Home I See Again
My childhood's home I see again,
And sadden with the view;
