(To have been read before the statue of Lafayette and Washington in Paris, on Decoration Day, May 30, 1916).
Ay, it is fitting on this holiday,
Commemorative of our soldier dead,
When -- with sweet flowers of our New England May
Hiding the lichened stones by fifty years made gray --
Their graves in every town are garlanded,
That pious tribute should be given too
