City Cemetery, Fort Collins

“In death – no! even in the grave all is not lost. Else there is no immortality for man. Arousing from the most profound slumbers, we break the gossamer web of some dream. Yet in a second afterward, (so frail may that web have been) we remember not that we have dreamed.” Edgar Allan Poe

  2. I actually visit cemeteries often. I find them very peaceful places and good spots to reflect and be grateful. Reading the old graves from a time when parents lost many children to preventable diseases is a good reminder of how fortunate we are now. This is a beautiful picture and a wonderfully apt quote from Poe. 🙂

    1. Jane, I do too. In fact, I come to this particular one often to walk and think. Yes, to take a moment to read some of the oldest stones and imagine the past is an interesting experience.
