    Breathe not a whisper here;
    The place where thou dost stand is hallowed ground;
    In silence gather near this upheaved mound -
    Around the soldier's bier.
    Here Liberty may weep,
    And Freedom pause in her unchecked career,
    To pay the sacred tribute of a tear
    O'er the pale warrior's sleep.
    That arm now cold in death,
    But late on glory's field triumphant bore
    Our country's flag; that marble brow once bore
    The victor's fadeless wreath.
    Rest soldier, sweetly rest;
    Affection's gentle hand shall deck thy tomb
    With flowers and chaplets of unfading bloom
    Be laid upon thy breast.
