THE PILGRIM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Where is the haunt of peace
Last Line: "and in death's garden all the flowers are grey"
Alternate Author Name(s): Tomson, Graham R.


WHERE is the haunt of Peace,
The place of all release—
Tell me, O Wind, the House of sweet repose?
"Night's dusky tent is spread
For tired heart and head,
And very fragrant is Night's orchard-close."

What of the soundless deep,
Those shining plains of Sleep
Whence the adventurer returns no more?
"Sleep is a golden sea,
With billows great and free,
But still they bear the swimmer back to shore."

Nay, tell me farther yet,
Where no swift waters fret,
Where rose and violet
Engarland not, nor ever blooms the May—
Tell me, O Wind, for you must know the way.
"Death's black pavilion stands
In the Unshapen Lands,
And in Death's garden all the flowers are grey"
