Poem by Thomas MacDonagh
Will you gaze after the dead, gaze into the grave?-- Strain your eyes in the darkness, knowing it vain? Strain your voice in the silence that never gave To any voice of yours an answer again? She whom you loved long years is dead, and you Stay, and you cannot bear it and cry for her-- And life will cure this pain -- or death: you too Shall quiet lie where cries no echo stir.
