THE ROSE BEYOND THE WALL

NEAR SHADY WALL A ROSE ONCE GREW BUDDED AND BLOSSOMED IN GODS FREE LIGHT. WATERED AND FED BY MORNING DEW SHEDDING ITS SWEETNESS DAY AND NIGHT.

AS IT GREW AND BLOSSOMED FAIR AND TALL SLOWLY RAISING TO LOFTIER HEIGHT IT CAME TO A CREVICE IN THE WALL.
THROUGH WHICH THERE SHONE A BEAM OF LIGHT.

ONWARD IT CREPT WITH ADDED STRENGTH WITH NEVER A THOUGHT OF FEAR OR PRIDE IT FOLLOWED THE LIGHT THROUGH THE CREVICE - LENGHT AND UNFOLDED ITSELF ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THE LIGHT, THE DEW , THE BROADENING VIEW WERE FOUND THE SAME AS THEY WERE BEFORE , AND IT LOST ITSELF IN BEAUTIES NEW BREATHING ITS FRAGRANCE MORE AND MORE .

SHALL CLAIM OF DEATH CAUSE US TO GRIEVE AND MAKE OUR COURAGE FAINT OR FALL ? NAY LET US FAITH AND HOPE RECEIVE , THE ROSE STILL GROWS BEYOND THE WALL.

SCATTERING FRAGRANCE FAR AND WIDE JUST AS IT DID IN THE DAYS OF YORE , JUST AS IT DID ON THE OTHER SIDE ,
JUST AS IT WILL FOREVERMORE .
