Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
“Peace and remembrance!”
By Edna Dean Proctor
 
PEACE and remembrance! All the great
  Of Israel’s line his brothers are—
Leader and prophet, priest and king;
  Aye, and the bright and morning star!
 
With force and fire and lofty aim        5
  He labored, all his crowded years:
Order from chaos, light from gloom
  He brought, and banished narrowing fears.
 
Nor bronze nor marble rear to him
  Whose fame transcends their poor degree!        10
His deeds are noblest monument;
  His life is immortality!
