babraham lincoln

ingrid as abe lincoln

on the eve of the day of presidents, here are two little tributes:  a picture of ingrid from halloween '11 in one of the best costumes i've ever seen.

and, a few poems from abraham lincoln.  my favorite is the bear hunt, but it's a bit long to post here, so i'm linking it instead of pasting in.

here are two interesting ditties from the prez:

Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln
his hand and pen
he will be good but
god knows When

To Rosa
You are young, and I am older;
      You are hopeful, I am not—
Enjoy life, ere it grow colder—
      Pluck the roses ere they rot.

Teach your beau to heed the lay—
      That sunshine soon is lost in shade—
That now’s as good as any day—
      To take thee, Rosa, ere she fade.

  1. Did not know that Lincoln wrote verse, but it makes sense as everyone wrote verse back then, no? I love these. How earthy he was. Important in a prez. And I. looks fab.
