Fugitive verse by Florence Earle Coates
President M'Kinley
Published in The Era (Oct 1901). Below is as rendered in Dominicana: A magazine of Catholic literature (November 1901):
...From the October number[1] we take, with due acknowledgments to the author, Florence Earle Coates, a graceful tribute to

PRESIDENT M'KINLEY.

Peace!—mourn no more the martyr's fate!
Death came—though by the hand of hate,
His faithful life to vindicate,
          His name to set apart.
No more assailed, misunderstood,
He sleeps where love his grave hath strewed,
Safe sentinelled by gratitude,—
          The memory of the heart.
