From Fifty Years in Brown County Convent
by A Member of the Community, 1895
"During the spring months of 1894, Daisy Braley, of London, Ohio, a most promising member of this class, showed symptoms of failing health, and hoping that a few weeks rest and change would restore her, she left for home in the early days of April. Animated with the strong desire to share with her class-mates in June, the graduating honors so fondly coveted, she would not relinquish the hope of returning, but her ardent wishes were not destined to be realized in this world. Growing steadily worse, her strength declined from day to day, and her fond parents were at last called upon in September, to give back the young and innocent child into the Hands of Him who gave the precious gift into their keeping."
TO DAISY BRAILEY
died September 24, 1894
A Daisy-bud was nodding
In the rosy-tinted dawn,
When the sun advanced, majestic
Over mountain, moor and lawn,
Till its shining reached the flower,
Till its splendor ruled the morn,
While the rosy blush grew fainter,
On to other regions borne.
Then the Daisy ope'd its petals
To the golden light of day,
Casting up a look of wonder,
Drinking in one sunny ray.
What has hued its white tips crimson?
Answer, little flower; say
Do you love the great sun yonder,
That you gaze upon it, aye?
Ah! the daisy need not tell me;
Well, I know her secret rare.
Since she looked upon his shining
She was His – the daisy fair;
And she lived upon His glory
In that upper, finer air,
Till He pitied, and He called her,
And she reigneth with Him there!
