God's acre wakes anew to poignant splendor.
Each greening mound a dream of quickened hope,
Aglow with magic tints, breath-taking, tender—
Rose—lilac—crimson—heliotrope.
And dainty shrubs, saluting idle breezes,
Drop petal-snow upon the sacred sod,
As baby-breath, in tiny feathered friezes,
Lifts lacy fronds—mute, worshipping, to God. ...

Each vernal resurrection brings to me,
Triumphant proof of immortality.
