Nesbitt Memorial Library Journal
This Summer scene is framed in garland gay
Of wild briar roses, bright as beauteous May;
Is it an emblem that from Wint'ry tomb
My thought shall spring, even as the roses bloom?
And do the chanting waves with low refrain
Say to my heart, we yet shall meet again?
71. In Memory of Mrs. M E. Converse (pub-
lished in Colorado Citizen, June 3, 1886, with
the sub-heading: "affectionately inscribed to
my loved friend, Mrs. C. M. Allen")
They tell us thou art gone, sweet friend, that thou
art lowly laid
Beneath the sod where flowers bloom, then
slowly fail and fade;
But yet we know thy presence lives to bless us
as of yore,
While thy happy spirit, safely dwells on life's
The hearts that loved thee bowed in woe, when
death's dark cloud of gloom
Hung densely low and earth to them seemed but
a living tomb.
But faith can draw the veil aside and show thee
in the light
Where sorrow nor where death can come, where
"there shall be no night."
But yet they long to hear again thy voice so gen-
That voice which once with music thrilled thy
home on earth below,
They long to see thy smile so dear, so fraught
with tender love
They long for Thee, whose life to theirs so closely
Oh, in the grateful hearts you blessed with many
a gentle word,
Or to their need your kindly gifts with generous
hand you poured,
Your memory lives and like the flowers which
spring from wint'ry tomb
Your deeds of love shall spring to life in future
years and bloom.
And still the record thou hast left shall shine with
To gloom on some poor pilgrim's path in sorrow's
As daughter, wife and mother, thy mission nobly
As "faithful unto death" the "crown of life" thou
now hast won.
We know that thou art perfect now, where love
can ne'er grow cold,
Where heart of man hath ne'er conceived the
glories all untold,
But oft we feel that in some sweet communion
thou art near
To tell of Paradise and still our earth warn hearts
And in the day when Christ, our blessed Re-
deemer strong to save,
Shall come to ransom all the just, from death and
from the grave
Thy form and spirit re-united shall in heavenly
To meet him with his angel hosts descending from
