in the garden one fine day

now there's full green and truly honest leaf

on both our maples so we say the spring

has really come and hearts may duly sing

of happy changes and complete relief

for though we know that every joy is brief

and what hard messages each day may bring

for this short time at least some bells should ring

allowing us forgetfulness of grief

what we each know is not all that is known

beneath the sun of that at least i'm sure

there's more to life than simple blood and bone

nor is the world one giant ghastly tomb

for see the rose and iris are in bloom
