CONRAD, CHARLES H. continued
Yet he is not dead but sleeping.
Though the days are lonely and long and sad,
O, father and mother, cease your tears;
Yea ye who loved him first and best,
Look out beyond the transient years
Unto that blest awaking.
Full many a heart’s warm, grateful love
Shall wake the songs that tell his fame,
And tears drop, like flowers embossed,
On the marble slab that bears his name,
Yet he is not dead but sleepeth.
He is not dead but sleeping, ye who loved
And praised; love ye and praise ye still.
Deathless, aye deathless are the stars that burn
Beyond the death-wave’s last cold chill,
And he is not dead but sleepeth.”
