Lincoln Monument:  Washington
Langston Hughes


Let's go see Old Abe
Sitting in the marble and the moonlight,
Sitting lonely in the marble and the moonlight,
Quiet for ten thousand centuries, old Abe.
Quiet for a million, million years.


Quiet--


And yet a voice forever
Against the
Timeless walls
Of time--
Old Abe.
