lincoln statues poem #4

 lincoln statues poem  #4

most of you are aware of the
numerous depictions in this
area of our most famous son
the volkmans even wrote a
booklet with numbered photos
well there’s a new statue just
dedicated in an impressive event
out on the university grounds
concealed beneath a blue veil till
the ceremony’s proper moment
the sculptor stood modestly by
during the speeches portrayed
is the young lincoln it’s well done
competently rendered but my
favorite remains the bulky one
in front of lincoln library at 7th
and capitol the one of lincoln
disguised as the tin woodman
