IN HER STUDIO; IN MEMORY OF SUSAN MERRILL FARNHAM, by            
First Line: Within her shadowed room, the hush
Last Line: Whose media lay in all material things.
Subject(s): Memory; Portraits


Within her shadowed room, the hush
Of silence where erst was heard
The sweetness of the welcoming word;
Upon the easel lies the brush
And hangs the palette bright, now dull and dry.
Her chair is empty, but the hands
Of skill have left their glowing trace
On canvas rich with many a place
Interpreted from far-off lands,
In tones like pastels from the orient sky.

Here pictured shrines of Philæ's shore,
Here Karnak's sphinx and templed halls;
The smooth-kissed stones of Zion's walls
Where Israel's sons their wails out-pour;
And here the sun-smit tombs of Judah's kings.
In cabinets of crusted bowls
Whose rose hues flush to life the clay,
Soft lights on tinted ivories play;
For hers was of those cosmic souls
Whose media lay in all material things.
