Read Lincoln of General William Booth enters into Heaven and other Poems, free online book, by Vachel Lindsay, on

  Would I might rouse the Lincoln in you all,
  That which is gendered in the wilderness
  From lonely prairies and God’s tenderness. 
  Imperial soul, star of a weedy stream,
  Born where the ghosts of buffaloes still dream,
  Whose spirit hoof-beats storm above his grave,
  Above that breast of earth and prairie-fire
  Fire that freed the slave.
