Opis: Lincoln and Twenty Other Poems (Classic Reprint) - Noe Cotton

Excerpt from Lincoln and Twenty Other Poems

Lincoln

The Brief for world democracy
Is Lincoln.
It was not accident of birth
That made him great.
Born within the palace of a king,
He would have cast the royal purple off
To clothe a shivering hind;
Or hearing hunger's cry,
Have plucked the jewels
From an ancient crown To save the starving child.
He was at home alike
In palace-hut of uncrowned peasant kings
And cabin-mansion of the presidents.
For it was man he loved -
The prince no less than pauper -
The slave that treads the mill of toil
As much as him who feeds upon the grist.

And why make much of Lincoln's poverty
Like Christ this man had bread to eat
We know not of;
And treasures stored where moths can not corrupt
Nor ever thieves break through and steal.
He was not poor, but rich Beyond all reckoning -
Inheritor of human love,
The heir of Him who taught the world
The priceless wage of sacrifice -
The gift of spending self
In human benefactions.

What matter that he went to school
By pineknot or electric glare
The light that never was on land or sea
Was his.
The page of knowledge that alone
Could satisfy his soul
Was taken from the book
Of human deeds,
