LINCOLN TRIUMPHANT, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Lincoln is not dead
Last Line: To make the world a world of friends.
Subject(s): Lincoln, Abraham (1809-1865); Presidents, United States

LINCOLN is not dead. He lives
In all that pities and forgives.
He has arisen and sheds a fire
That makes America aspire.

Even now as, when in life, he led,
He leads us onward from the dead;
Yes, over the whole wide world he bends
To make the world a world of friends.
