COL. T.A. GREEN
American soldier
(19th century)

Great God! We thank Thee for this home,
  This bounteous birthland of the free,
    Where wanderers from afar may come,
      And breathe the air of liberty;
        Still may her flowers untrampled spring,
          Her harvests wave, her cities rise,
            And yet, till time shall fold her wing,
              Remain earth's loveliest paradise.
                Give me the death of those
                  Who for their country die;
                    And oh, be mine like-their repose,
                      As cold and low they lie.
                        Their loveliest mother earth
                          Enshrines the fallen brave;
                            In her sweet lap who gave them birth,
                              They find a tranquil grave.
      - [Decoration Day]
