When I Am Gone
By Isabel Pixley
WHEN I am gone and the grass grows green
O’er the couch where I’m laid to rest,
Will you seek that spot, with a kindly thought
For the one that loved you best?
If you do, and you shed but a single tear,        5
Though I cannot stretch forth my hand,
A violet blue shall smile up at you
To tell you I understand.
