Lucy Maud Montgomery (Люси Мод Монтгомери)


My Legacy


My friend has gone away from me 
From shadow into perfect light, 
But leaving a sweet legacy. 

My heart shall hold it long in fee­
A grand ideal, calm and bright,
A song of hope for ministry, 

A faith of unstained purity, 
A thought of beauty for delight­
These did my friend bequeath to me; 

And, more than even these can be, 
The worthy pattern of a white, 
Unmarred life lived most graciously. 

Dear comrade, loyal thanks to thee 
Who now hath fared beyond my sight, 
My friend has gone away from me, 
But leaving a sweet legacy.
