Strength, chasing the distant mark.
Toll, tracing in ashes the spark.
Hope, facing the dawn through the dark.
Life. - that is life in the bloom.
Peace, feeling nor love nor hate.
Sleep, stealing the malice from fate.
Death, healing all wounds though late.
Life. - that is life indeed.
From the Hebrew inscription: Shmuel b the Rev Mr. Abraham Eliezer
