Epitaph

Zoltan Jacob, '38

The Magpie, January 1937, v. 21, n. 1., p. 11.

Here lies in Peace—
In Peace—
A soul of yesterday,
Whose wanton search for waning life
      In Stygian rivers seldom pierced by silver rays;
      In fields of swaying grain;
      In silent love,
    Has ended now
    In Peace.

In Peace
Where Azraelian wings
      Shield from mortal tongues,
      And surging blood,
      And clashing armor;
Where all is silence,
And there is no waiting for the harvest
      In Peace—
      For the land has claimed its burden
      In everlasting peace.
