    Tending to the Grave Forever...Lake Forest Cemetery. Beautiful.

    No words, this is grief manifested into such beauty.


    When Caroline Walter of Freiburg, Germany died at the age of 16, her sister Selma had a sculptor cast a life size sculpture for the gravestone. Every morning since Caroline's funeral, a fresh flower was found tucked in the crook of the arm, and still is to this day. Nobody knows who leaves it. Every single morning. Except Caroline died in 1867. For 145 years, someone(s) have been leaving flowers. Now that's devotion!

    Gravestone in Highgate

    John Keats’ Tombstone, Rome, Italy “Keats traveled to Rome and died there, aged just 25, in February, 1821. He told his friend Joseph Severn that he didn’t want his name to appear on his tombstone, but merely this line: HERE LIES ONE WHOSE NAME WAS WRIT IN WATER Severn honoured that wish, as the gravestone shows. Keats is commemorated just as ‘A young English poet.’”
