STANZAS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I'll not weep that thou art going to leave me
Last Line: To go and rest with thee.
Alternate Author Name(s): Bell, Ellis
Subject(s): Grief; Death; Sorrow; Sadness; Dead, The

I'LL not weep that thou art going to leave me,
There's nothing lovely here;
And doubly will the dark world grieve me,
While thy heart suffers there.

I'll not weep, because the summer's glory
Must always end in gloom;
And, follow out the happiest story --
It closes with a tomb!

And I am weary of the anguish
Increasing winters bear;
Weary to watch the spirit languish
Through years of dead despair.

So, if a tear, when thou art dying,
Should haply fall from me,
It is but that my soul is sighing,
To go and rest with thee.
