Death, Being but a flower of breath, Ev nas thy fair body is Moment sfigure of the bliss Dwelling in the mind of God When He called thee from the sod, Like a crocus up to start, Gray-eyed with a golden heart, Out of earth, and point our sight To thy eternal home of light. Here on earth is all we know :T olet our love as steadfast blow, Open-hearted to the sun, Folded down when our days done, As thy flower that bids it be Flower of thy charity. Tis not ours to boast or pray Breath from us shall outlive clay 5T is not thine, thou Pitiful, Set me task beyond my rule. Yet as young men carve on trees Lovely names, and find in these Solace in the after time, So to have hid thee in my rhyme Shall be comfort when I take The lonely road. Then, for my sake, Keep thou this my graven sigh, A nd, that I may not all die, Open it, and hear it tell, Here was one who loved thee well. October 6, 1912.
