Famous quotes containing the word finch:

    By the flow of the inland river,
    Whence the fleets of iron have fled,
    Where the blades of the grave-grass quiver,
    Asleep are the ranks of the dead:—
    —Francis Miles Finch (1827–1907)

    No more shall the war cry sever,
    Or the winding rivers be red:
    They banish our anger forever
    When they laurel the graves of our dead!
    Under the sod and the dew,
    Waiting the Judgment Day:—
    Love and tears for the Blue;
    Tears and love for the Gray.
    —Francis Miles Finch (1827–1907)
