What can we do but pillow that fair head, And let the Spring-time write her epitaph? — As it will soon, in snowdrop, violet, Wind-flower and columbine and maiden's tear; Each letter of that pretty alphabet, That spells in flowers the pageant of the year. She was a maiden for a man to love ; She was a woman for a husband's life; One that had learned to value, far above The name of love, the sacred name of wife.
