The Grave

On the place his body lies
nature's beauties grow
The earth which she is buried in
I doubt be ever known
Cruel flowers you are taunting her
you grow upon his blood
and Mary without grave now sleeps
He rests where crimeless should
Visit her, I never will
and so I visit there
to pluck the blossom from his mound
and place a thistle there
