amyking.wordpress.com- When Abraham Lincoln was shoveled into the tombs, he forgot the copperheads and the assassin in the dust, in the cool tombs.
And Ulysses Grant lost all thought of con men and Wall street, cash and collateral turned ashes in the dust, in the cool tombs. Pocahontas body, lovely as a poplar, sweet as a red haw in November or a pawpaw in May, did she wonder? does she remember, in the dust, in the cool tombs?
