This from a mother's day card distributed in 1944. It was intended as a consolation to grieving mothers and wives who had lost loved ones on the battlefield.

The Earth Will Bear Fruit once More
The earth rests, whatever else may happen.
The streams flow pure from their source.
A forest grows, grass and sheaves rustle.
Birds fly up. The earth rests.
You rest in it. Your bed is a green meadow.
A hill of earth warms you.
The rain waters you. Hundreds of seeds sprout
And bear fruit, then turn, like you, to dust.
And once again the earth bears fruit,
For nothing perishes that is surrounded by it.
Friend, believe, do not complain.
The victory of life is the meaning of the world.
