   The Rose Still Grows
          ...Beyond The Wall

Near shady wall a rose once grew,
       budded and blossomed in Godís free light,
watered and fed by morning dew,
       shedding itís sweetness day and night.
As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
       slowly rising to loftier height,
it came to a crevice in the wall
       thru 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 thru the creviceís length
       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 itís 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 days of yore,
just as it did on the other side,
       just as it will for evermore.

       A. L. Frink, 1936    www.LDSCOPS.com
