629. Love’s Resurrection Day
 
By Louise Chandler Moulton
 
 
ROUND among the quiet graves,
      When the sun was low,
Love went grieving,—Love who saves:
      Did the sleepers know?
 
At his touch the flowers awoke,        5
      At his tender call
Birds into sweet singing broke,
      And it did befall
 
From the blooming, bursting sod
      All Love’s dead arose,        10
And went flying up to God
      By a way Love knows.
