Carl Sandburg - Trinity Place

THE GRAVE of Alexander Hamilton is in Trinity yard at the end of Wall Street.
  
The grave of Robert Fulton likewise is in Trinity yard where Wall Street stops.
  
And in this yard stenogs, bundle boys, scrubwomen, sit on the tombstones, and walk on the grass of graves, speaking of war
and weather, of babies, wages and love.
  
An iron picket fence … and streaming thousands along Broadway sidewalks … straw hats, faces, legs … a singing,
talking, hustling river … down the great street that ends with a Sea.
  
… easy is the sleep of Alexander Hamilton.
… easy is the sleep of Robert Fulton.
… easy are the great governments and the great steamboats.
