AS the shadows filled the room with peace,
We spoke of our absent friends:
How some were dead and some were sped
To the far-away earth ends.

And by some magic of yearning hearts,
The lost seemed warm and near;
Yes, loved so much we could almost touch
Their hands and feel them here.

And when the lamps were lit, and speech
Waxed merrier, yet the place
Felt strangely bare, and each one there
Missed some beloved face.
