Life's Lessons In the Flowers

Poet: C. C. Hassler

The frost fell crisp and white upon
A bright October morn;
The flowers that bloomed in beauty are,
Alas, of beauty shorn.
The rose with fragrance sweet that bloomed,
Has drooped its crimson head.
And like the modest pansy lies
All withered, bleak and dead.
The frost King — harsh, relentless — touched,
As with a magic wand,
The summer beauties as the sere
October morning dawned.

Thus life's fond hopes' and longings oft
Will vanish in a day.
And like the flowers that bud and bloom
Pass silently away.
Youth, with its pleasures, quickly fades,
But love's young dream oft told,
Thank God, outlives the chillng frost
To cheer us when we're old.
And blooms anew each day and year
Beneath the warmth and glow
Of summer's sun. as first it did.
Long, long, bright years ago.

So let us cherish all the joys
That summer's bloom imparts,
And fold them tenderly and safe
Wiithin our care-worn hearts.
Some glad, bright morn they'll bloom again —
Some glad, bright day we'll see
The wisdom of the Hand that shapes
Life's path for you and me.
And far more joyous will it be
Their glad return to greet;
Bright bud and blossom cheering us
With fragrance new and sweet.
