VII.


Oh! in the great strength of thy unhooded soul, pray
for my weakness.
Let me go! See the pale and solemn army of the
night is on the march.
Do not let my shivering soul go wailing up for a human
love to the throne of the Eternal.
Have we not watched the large setting sun drive a

column of light through the horizon down into the
darkness?
So within the grave's night, O my beloved! shall my
love burn on to eternity.
O Death! Death! loose out thy cold, stiff fingers from
my quivering heart!
Let the warm blood rush back to gasp up but one more
word!
O Love! thou art stronger, mightier than all!
O Death! thou hast but wedded me to Life!
Life is Love, and Love is Eternity.
