"Body o' mine — and must I lay thee low?
So long I have looked out from the deaz eye!
Ears that have brought me song, and willing hands,
And feet that carried me to pleasant fields —
Shall dust claim all, and must I say good-bye?
Godspeed!"

"Sister o' mine — I go from whence I came,
Perchance to bloom again, or if required,
When time is ripe, to house another soul.
Thou art more wise than I, yet recketh not,
Oh, soul o' mine, that I at last am tired!
Godspeed!"
