IMMORTALITY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Strong as the death it masters, is the hope
Last Line: Mine the first welcome heard in paradise.
Alternate Author Name(s): L. E. L.; Maclean, Letitia
Subject(s): Immortality


STRONG as the death it masters, is the hope
That onward looks to immortality:
Let the frame perish, so the soul survive,
Pure, spiritual and loving. I believe
The grave exalts, not separates, the ties
That hold us in affection to our kind.
I will look down from yonder pitying sky,
Watching and waiting those I love on earth,
Anxious in heaven until they too are there.
I will attend your guardian angel's side,
And weep away your faults with holy tears;
Your midnight shall be filled with solemn thought:
And when, at length, death brings you to my love,
Mine the first welcome heard in paradise.
