  • What do we plant when we plant a tree?
    A thousand things that we daily see,
    We plant the spire that out-towers the crag,
    We plant the staff for our country's flag;
    We plant the shade from the hot sun free,
    We plant all these when we plant the tree.

The French Marshal

Full text at Wikisource
  • McMahon up the street of Paris came,
    In triumph from Magenta. Every one
    Had heard and praised the fearless marshal’s name,
    And gloried in the deeds that he had done.
    Crowds packed the walks, and at each seperate glass
    A face was set to see the hero pass.
