UNDER THE CYPRESS TREES: THE BRILLIANT FIRST CEN
Bryn and Sherna Deamer, the chief librarian and the head of the publishing section in the Bah�'� World Centre library gave my wife, my son and I a private tour of the Baha’i Cemetery in the late afternoon of Friday 9 June.� It is a cemetery where Universal House of Justice members, Hands of the Cause and several workers at the World Centre lie buried.� I found the experience very moving because I had come to know so very many of the people who had passed away and who were buried in that place--not personally of course but through living in the first century of the Bah�'� Faith’s Formative Age(1921-2021) and studying its history.� I felt a closeness to many of these men and women.� It was the only place where I was moved to tears during my pilgrimage. -Ron Price,
Pioneering Over Three Epochs
, 9 June 2000.
So many familiar names here
under yet more cypress trees:
the Revell sisters’ final resting place;
and there’s Elizabeth Martin’s stone:
I knew her well, well not that well;
And there’s old Esslemont, well, not
that old really: died at only 51!
Quite a galaxy of servants to this Cause:
an elite cadre!� And a nicely kept place:
simple, small, accessible, not your orgy
of stone going on and on forever through
anonymous lines of very unknown people.
An intimate spot with several twisted trees,
souls beyond, now, beyond the twisted reach
of any of our sorrows as Bob Dylan once sang.
Men and women of the Formative Age and the
first five epochs of its brilliant first century.
