I love this moving poem. We feel this humble lady, who's mostly forgotten
now, her love for Lincoln and his for her. Masters brings us an image that
this crucial second chance for our nation, after such a tragic agonizing
war, arises in part, from the ashes of their loss of one another, a true
tragedy turned to something good. Putting aside the controversy over their
love's existence, and just allowing the spirit of this piece to take you,
will make you misty eyed if you love the immortal ideas of 'malice toward
none, charity for all.' To refer to this as deathless music is lovely and
stirring, in connection with the lives of these two lovers, who knew the
anguish of loss through death. We'd all love for that music to play on
forever. He beautifully invokes the feelings that Abe surely felt, wishing
for our wonderful nation, a rebirth without the stain of slavery, with
folks forgiving and healing their wounds, so the nation/republic could
survive. We don't know Anne very well, as history and death obscurred her
countenance, but he brings feeling and life to her, and gives us a glimpse
of what she likely would have wished for and cared about. Thumbs up!
