GREAT OAK, by            
First Line: Some men are born, while others seem to grow
Last Line: When he might save a nation in its strife.
Subject(s): Lincoln, Abraham (1809-1865); Presidents, United States


SOME men are born, while others seem to grow
From out the soil, like towering trees that spread
Their strong, broad limbs in shelter overhead
When tempest storms, protecting all below.

Lincoln, Great Oak of a Nation's life,
Rose from the soil, with all its virgin power
Emplanted in him for the fateful hour,
When he might save a Nation in its strife.
