Inscription

As the life of a flower,
As a breath or a sigh,
So the years that we live
As a dream hasten by.
True, today we are here,
But tomorrow may see
Just a grave in the vale
And a memory of me.
So the years glide away
And, alas, we must die.

The authors name for this poem is Laura E Newell - later set to music in 1953 by G H Ramsey.
