THE LONELY DEATH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: In the cold I will rise, I will bathe
Last Line: And draw the sheet under my chin.
Subject(s): Cold; Dawn; Death; Solitude; Sunrise; Dead, The; Loneliness


In the cold I will rise, I will bathe
In waters of ice; myself
Will shiver, and shrive myself,
Alone in the dawn, and anoint
Forehead and feet and hands;
I will shutter the windows from light,
I will place in their sockets the four
Tall candles and set them aflame
In the grey of the dawn; and myself
Will lay myself straight in my bed,
And draw the sheet under my chin.
