MY FA T H E R.

1792–1873.

O thou of wise and gentle life,
Unselfish, faithful, free from guile,
Disdaining Mammon's sordid strife!
I see THEE now serenely smile
As thine own words of patriot truth,
Gathered in Freedom's early bloom, –
The garnered lessons of my youth, –
I lay, a chaplet, on thy tomb.

JULY 4, 1876.
