Poems, Volume I by Florence Earle Coates
Immortal

IMMORTAL

LIFE is like a beauteous flower,
 Closing to the world at even,—
Closing for a dreamless hour,
 To unfold, with dawn, on heaven.


Life is like a bird that nests
 Close to earth, no shelter scorning,
Yet, upmounting from her breast,
 Fills the skies with song at morning.
