Tragedy in Ohio

I mourn with the Chardon High School Community in its hour of tragedy.
Perhaps in this neglected spot is laid
Some heart once pregnant with celestial fire,
Hands, that the rod of empire might have sway'd,
Or wak'd to extasy the living lyre.

But Knowledge to their eyes her ample page
Rich with the spoils of time did ne'er unroll.
    - Thomas Grey, Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard
