More Eloquence From Theodore O'Hara

Poetry of Theodore O'Hara commemorating William Taylor Barry found in the History of Lexington, Kentucky:

"Let the marble minstrel rise to sing to the future generations of the commonwealth the inspiring lay of his high genius and lofty deeds.  Le the autumn wind harp on the dropping leaves her softest requiem over him; let the winter's purest snow rest spotless on his grave; let spring entwine her brightest garland for his tomb, and summer gild it with her mildest sunshine, and let him sleep embalmed in glory till the last trumph shall reveal him to us all radiant with the halo of his life."


O'Hara and his well-known Bivouac Of The Dead.
