The first photo above is for "Black & White Wednesday". This is my stash of some of my favorite photos from my morning at Bonaventure Cemetery. The photo below breaks my heart as it is of four (Schwarz) baby graves placed within a few short years of each other.
I.M. Marsh published a poem in 1860 about this place. I understand it was a 21 page composition. Here is an excerpt: "Here man can calmly sleep the sleep of death; Fanned by the swaying breezes gentle breath, the dreamless sleep - the sleep eternal, laid Darkly shrouded beneath the cooling shade.
Every grave, every name has a story but I think I will let the beauty of each memorial "speak" for itself. I hope you enjoy the photos.
