Death beckoned her with outstretched hand
And whispered softly of an unknown land,
But she was not afraid to go
For though the path she did not know
She took death’s hand without a fear
For God who safely brought her here
Had promised He would lead the way
Into eternity’s bright day.

But not of war it sings to-day.

The road is rhythmic with the feet

Of men-at-arms who come to pray.

The roses blossom white and red
On tombs where weary soldiers lie;

Flags wave above the honored dead

And martial music cleaves the sky.

I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
