I THOUGHT to have made her my bride,
And now she is dead;
Death holds her close by his side
In his earth-dark bed.

Not a murmur, a motion, a breath!—
In vain does he woo:
Being dead, yet she yields not to Death;—
Endlessly true!

She knows that I need her now
All else above:
She will come to me; when and how
We leave to Love.
