Laurel Leaves


Emblem that one heart has reaches the ending
Of Life's journey, perilous and steep.
Symbol that a victor lies here, and spending
These last hours in deep, majestic sleep


How can this be called a badge of sorrow?
Who will weep, when burdens are laid down?
Rather say, "A king goes forth tomorrow
Who has proved his right to wear the crown."
