Safe In Their Alabaster Chambers

Safe in their Alabaster Chambers--
Untouched my 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!
