Out of the conquered Past

Unravishable Beauty, Hearts that are dew and dust

Rebuking the dream of Death; Flower of the clay down-cast

Triumphant in earth's aroma; Strings that were strained in rust

A-tremble with Music's breath!

Wine that was spilt in haste

Arising in fumes more precious; Garlands that fell forgot

Rooting to wondrous bloom; Youth that would flow to waste

Pausing in pool-green valleys And Passion that lasted not Surviving the voiceless Tomb!

ARTHUR UPSON.
