He knew to bide his time,
And can his fame abide,
Till the wise years decide.
Disturb our judgment for the hour,
These all are gone, and, standing like a tower, Our children shall behold his fame,
The kindly, eamest, brave, foreseeing man, Sagacious, patient, dreading praise, not blame, New birth of our new soil, the first American.
-Lowell, Commemoration Ode
