A Rose to the Living
 
Nixon Waterman
 
 
A ROSE to the living is more
  Than sumptuous wreaths to the dead;
In filling love’s infinite store,
A rose to the living is more,
If graciously given before        5
  The hungering spirit is fled,—
A rose to the living is more
  Than sumptuous wreaths to the dead.
