[Written for the Sentinel.]

A THOUGHT OF LIFE

Amid the scenes of that which we call death,The stronger thought of Life and Truth and Love,If held through all the clamor and the rushOf speechless anguish, loss, and sense of pain,Will keep the heart untroubled, undismayed.The thought of Life lifts one above earth-mistsInto that realm where light alone holds sway,And gentlest voice forever speaks of peaceAnd buoyant hope. 'Tis here alone we seeThat Life knows naught of death; it only knowsLove's harmony and Truth's eternal wordThat bids the storm of mortal sense be still!
