MRS. MARGARET ELIZABETH SANGSTER
American writer, poet and editor
(1838 - 1912)

At Christmas-tide the open hand
  Scatters its bounty o'er sea and land,
    And none are left to grieve alone,
      For Love is heaven and claims its own.
      - [Christmas]

Great knightly soul who came in time to serve his country's need,
  To serve her with the timely word and with the valiant deed,
    Along the ages brightening as endless cycles run
      Undimmed and gaining luster in the twentieth century's sun,
        First in our Hall of Fame we write the name all folk may ken,
          As first in war, and first in peace, first with his countrymen.
      - [Washington, George]

Ring, joyous bells of Easter,
  Death hath not conquered Life;
    Victorious is our risen Lord,
      And finished all His strife,
        From Calvary's mount of darkness,
          Lo! starry lilies bloom;
            For by the cross we conquer
              And fearless face the tomb.
      - [Easter]

So bright in death I used to say,
  So beautiful through frost and cold!
    A lovelier thing I know to-day,
      The leaf is growing old,
        And wears in grace of duty done,
          The gold and scarlet of the sun.
      - A Maple Leaf [Trees]

All day in the green sunny orchard
  When May was a marvel of bloom,
    I followed the busy bee-lovers
      Down path that were sweet with perfume.
      - Apple Blossoms [Apple Blossoms]

Out of the chill and the shadow,
  Into the thrill and the shine;
    Out of the dearth and the famine,
      Into the fulness divine.
      - Going Home [Death]
