“A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOREVER”

THE ISENBERG-COOKE-RICE MEMORIAL

NOT with the purpose oft vain–glorious shows,
But to express the rooted faith that grows
Like that small mustard see. Beauty and Art,
Like two twin souls nor care nor fret can part,
Here meet in chaste embrace; in sweet combine
Their tender tendrils clasp and strong entwine
The wisdom of the ages long to teach,
The all-prevailing truth, –the one great speech–
To lift our eyes, our hearts, our minds above,
To learn, to feel to know that—‘GOD IS LOVE.’
