2. The Victory of Death -


I am true to you, Beloved and only Love,
Even though others seem to snatch away
This wayward heart of mine, and every day
Finds me still seeking in each stranger's face
The face I loved, and if at times I trace
A chance resemblance, see your mouth or eyes
(Eyes coloured like the clearest April skies)
I love you again Beloved and only Love.

I am true to you, Beloved and only Love,
Though you have grown indifferent to me;
Since Death has led you where I cannot see
If you remember. Only guess at this,
That you sleep sound or find strange lips to kiss,
Oh, what thoughts shall be thought or what words said
To comfort those who sorrow for the dead?
I know you are changed, Beloved and only Love.
