Requiem
By Margaret DeLaughter
 
From “In the Night Watches”

ALL the love, the love we gave them;
Tears, unanswered prayers to save them!
Now, what is there left to show?—
Wooden crosses in a row!
 
They wore their crown of thorns so lightly,        5
June still blossoms just as brightly.
How can laughing roses know
Of wooden crosses in a row?
 
Is it, then, so sweet, their sleeping?
After all, was life worth keeping?        10
There they lie, and none may know—
Wooden crosses in a row.
