CHARLES GRAHAM HALPINE
(USED PSEUDONYM MILES O'REILLY)
American (Irish-born) journalist, poet and humorist
(1829 - 1869)

A martyr to the cause of man,
  His blood is freedom's eucharist,
    And in the world's great hero list
      His name shall lead the van.
      - Death of Lincoln [Lincoln, Abraham]

It was brown with a golden gloss, Janette,
  It was finer than silk of the floss, my pet;
    'Twas a beautiful mist falling down to your wrist,
      'Twas a thing to be braided, and jewelled, and kissed--
        'Twas the loveliest hair in the world, my pet.
      - Janette's Hair [Hair]

When asked what State he hails from,
  Our sole reply shall be,
    He comes from Appomattox
      And its famous apple tree.
      - Poem quoted by Roscoe Conkling [America]
