Give me no grave, who loved the summer sky | 06-Dec-17

Enquirer is trying to find out who wrote this poem:

Give me no grave, who loved the summer sky
Not dark decay, but purifying flame
And set no stone to grieve the passer-by;
Let thought and substance vanish, whence they came,
Into the elements that build the star,
The breath of life and busy mind of man –
So shall my dust discover what we are
And win its deepest peace since Time began.
If epitaph you seek, write this on air,
“She loved the green earth and her fellow man;
Nature and Cause were her especial care;
She touched the hem of Truth and, now and then,
Testing old faiths she said, with proffered hand,
“You would believe, but I must understand”
