Knight Headstone. They came to raise our hearts to heaven, They go to call us there.
Headstone of Catherine Belle "Katie" Geiger Knight. 1879-1932.
Headstone quote comes from beautiful, sad poem by Eliza Lee Follen, called
"Death of a Beautiful Girl"
THE young, the lovely pass away,
Ne'er to be seen again;
Earth's fairest flowers too soon decay;
Its blasted trees remain.
Full oft we see the brightest thing
That lifts its head on high,
Smile in the light, then droop its wing,
And fade away, and die.
And kindly is the lesson given,
Then dry the falling tear;
They came to raise our hearts to heaven,
They go to call us there.
