Bio info from Kara Graper via suggest a correction 12/2011


A singer of sweet songs is gone
It seems but yesterday his genial smile
Brightened the things he looked upon
And Made Life more worthwhile
Gone in the Golden promise of his youth
Gone while his Genius gave its first bright gleams
Gone while the countr echoed with his song. You are the ideals of my Dreams.Rest, Herbert Ingraham, rest.Fair be the unknowned land you've journeyed to.and we will think of summer come and go "Roses bring dreams of You...."
