Lucretia Maria Davidson (Лукреция Мария Дэвидсон)


Death


(Written in her sixteenth year.)

The destroyer cometh; his footstep is light,
He marketh the threshold of sorrow at night;
He steals like a thief o'er the fond one's repose,
And chills the warm tide from the heart as it flows.

His throne is the tomb, and a pestilent breath
Walks forth on the night-wind, the herald of death!
His couch is the bier, and the dark weeds of woe
Are the curtains which shroud joy's deadliest foe.

  2. To a Departing Friend
  3. Morning Melody
  4. Alonzo and Imanel
  5. On Reading a Fragment Called The Flower of the Forest
