RUGGED FACES, by                
First Line: I love the hills and mountains
Last Line: A friend to all mankind.
Subject(s): Character; Faces; Lincoln, Abraham (1809-1865); Presidents, United States

I love the hills and mountains,
The high and rugged places;
I love that rugged element
In many human faces.

The kindly smile upon the cheek,
The furrows on the brow;
The lines about a tender mouth,
That come there then and now.

It makes me think of Lincoln great,
So tender and so kind;
Yet stern when he had need to be,—
A friend to all mankind.
