bullet  General Notes:

Poem from Lowell's funeral bulletin: TO OUR FATHER
A giant oak, magnificent and old,
Stood staunch against the sky and all around.
Shed beauty, grace, and power. Within it's fold.
Birds safely reared their young. The velvet ground
Beneath was gentle, and the cooling shade.
Gave cheer to passers by. It's arms towering.
A landmark stood, erect and unafraid,
As if to say, "Fear not from life's alarms"
It fell one day, where it had dauntless stood.
Was loneliness and void. But men who passed,
Paid tribute - - said "To know this life was good.
It left it's mark on me. It's work stands fast."
And so it lives, such life no bonds can hold - -
This giant oak magnificent and old.

- by Georgia Harkness
