PEACE!—mourn no more the martyr's fate!"McKinley" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in The Era (Oct 1901).
Death came—though by the hand of hate,
His faithful life to vindicate,
His name to set apart.
No more assailed, misunderstood,
He sleeps where love his grave hath strewed,
Safe sentinelled by gratitude,—
The memory of the heart.
