The Leaf (Poem by Duncan Campbell Scott)

Suggested Poem


The Leaf
By Duncan Campbell Scott


This silver-edged geranium leaf
Is one sign of a bitter grief
Whose symbols are a myriad more;
They cluster round a carven stone
Where she who sleeps is never alone
For two hearts at the core,

Bound with her heart make one of three,
A trinity in unity,
One sentient heart that grieves;
And myriad dark-leaved memories keep
Vigil above the triune sleep, — 
Edged all with silver are the leaves.
