THE DEAD EMPEROR, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: To-day, with bending head and eyes, thou, too, columbia
Last Line: Mourning a good old man -- a faithful shepherd, patriot.
Subject(s): Alexander Ii, Czar Of Russia (1818-1881)


To-day, with bending head and eyes, thou, too, Columbia,
Less for the mighty crown laid low in sorrow -- less for the Emperor,
Thy true condolence breathest, sendest out o'er many a salt sea mile,
Mourning a good old man -- a faithful shepherd, patriot.
