Lincoln Monument: Washington

Let's go see Old Abe
Sitting in the marble and the moonlight,
Sitting lonely in the marble and the moonlight,
Quiet for ten thousand centuries, old Abe.
Quiet for a million, million years.

Quiet-

And yet a voice forever
Against the
Timeless walls
Of time-
Old Abe.

by Langston Hughes

Lincoln may have been carved in the marble but the great values he upheld and ideals he fought for will live for ever and cannot be petrified. So, the poem gives reason for Lincoln Museum to be there in Washington.
And yet a voice forever Against the Timeless walls Of time- Old Abe. Yes Abraham Lincoln will remain the voice forever against all injustice. A man who said his word and left but it is still there.
