to ou: beloved friend, Elmira Lp
Blanc who departed this life on Sat
urday. August 28, 1920:
Ye birds that sing a Joyous song
Sing ye of dear Elmira.
A form more fair, a face more sweat
Had none than dear Elm'ra.
Ye roses, violets, lilies, dasies,
All come and join and sing your
And every pansy at our feet
Will join and this tale repeat.
She Has as lovely as a rose,
With hair that was so fair
And her smile was like sunshine
With never a shadow there.
Now in that land of pure delight
Where saints immortal reign,
With grace, sweet grace celestial,
Does dear Elmira reign.
And we'll think of her as the roses
And the song birds sing so soft and
