    A dirge for the brave old pioneer
    The patriarch of his tribe
    He sleeps, no pompous pile marks where,
    No line his deeds describe.
    They raised no stone above him here
    Nor carved his deathless name.
    An empire is his sepulchre,
    His epitaph is fame.

    Written for an all American hero
    who died this day 1820
