Kate Brownlee Sherwood
Peace

O beautiful one, my Country,
Thou fairest daughter of Time.
To-day are thine eyes unclouded
In the light of a faith sublime!
No thunder of battle appals thee;
From thy woe thou has found release;
From the graves of thy sons steals only
This one soft whisper, – “Peace!”

Gettysburg 1863-1889
