Valentino Memorial…

 Rudolph Valentino



May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926




by Margaret Sangster


His feet had carried him so very swiftly,

Into the lands of wonder and romance;

And yet, although they travelled far, they never

Forgot to dance.


His lips had learned to speak a stranger language,

His smile had warmed the wistful, lonely earth —

Yet fame had never taken, from his spirit,

The gift of mirth!


Although his eyes glimpsed bitterness and sadness,

They saw a dream that few folk ever see —

God grant the dream may tinge, with lovely color,

Death’s Mystery!

Photoplay, October 1926
