Fascicle Copies: Safe in their Alabaster Chambers 1

Perhaps a squirrel may remain - 
My sentiments to share -
Grant me, O Lord, a sunny mind - 
They windy will to bear!

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers
Untouched by Morning - 
And untouched by Noon - 
Sleep the Meek Members of the 
Resurrection - 
Rafter of Satin,
And Roof of Stone.
Light laughs the breeze 
In her Castle above them - 
Babbles the Bee in a stolid Ear, 
Pipe the Sweet Birds in ignorant
cadence - 
Ah, what sagacity perished here!
