First Line: Oh, when the grave shall open for me
Last Line: The bending and dark blue violet.
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia
Subject(s): Flowers; Graves; Violets; Tombs; Tombstones


Oh, when the grave shall open for me, --
(I care not how soon that time may be, --)
Never a rose shall grow on that tomb,
It breathes too much of hope and bloom;
But there be that flower's meek regret,
The bending and dark blue Violet.
