e, Who steadfast by thy cradle watched, And poured the ardent prayer. Thou shouldst not to her banded foes Have lent thy ready ear, Nor seen them desolate her joys Without a filial tear; Though all beside her banner-fold Had trampled down and rent, Thou shouldst have propp'd its shattered staff With loyalty unspent; Though all beside had recreant proved, Thou shouldst have stood to aid, Like Abdiel, dreadless seraph, Alone, yet undismayed. Who sleepeth at Mount Vernon, In the glory of his fame? Yet, go in silent infamy, Nor dare pronounce his name, For thou hast of their sacred force, His farewell counsels reft, And help'd to scatter to the winds The rich bequest he left; And in the darkest trial-hour, Forsook the endangered side, And, ere the cock crew thrice, thy true Discipleship denied. Oh! that the pitying Prince of Peace On thee his glance might bend, And from remediless remorse Preserve our long-loved friend. Hartford, Conn., May 21, 1861. --National Intelligencer, June 8.
