COURIER NEWS Items of Personal Interest SOCIETY-CLUBS Activities and News of Women "The Old' Chnrchyard" The glow of sunset softly falls, While streaming through majestic p!ne, To rest on Ivy-covered walls .And bathe a vagrant columbine. Then on through vine-clad gates, long barred, O'er sunken path and bord'rlng moss, It gently steals to yon churchyard To trace a shadow of the cross. And seek among the myrlled plots To find the lilies hidden there, Sweet iris and for-get-me-nots, The violets and maindcnhair. Then lingers, as it, fainter grows, To shed its mellow radiance round On crumbling tombs and marble rows, t And fondly touch each silent mound. When from tlie leafy heights nbove The last sweet carol dies away Once more the note ol cooing dove And shadpws veil tne passing day A stillness—musical, sublime, As of celestial release, An echo of a ves;;er chime— A hidden host abides In peace. —Emma Busch Lange.
