You walk a sacred ground, tread gently here;
This field was dearly bought. Through sacrifice
Of blood and tears a nation's glories rise,
Builded by men who never learned to yield
To any foe -- mortal or not of clay.

The toiler's story whispers yonder oak,
Rugged as he and bent with heavy years,
Yet broken not, though trembling oft with fears;
A hero garland-crowned by Nature's hand --
The fearless planter's worthy monument.
