ALCESTIS: BEREAVEMENT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I had a kinsman; he
Last Line: Death robs their brides.
Subject(s): Mourning; Bereavement

I HAD a kinsman; he
Lost in his home a son, --
True tears were his to shed, --
His child, his only one.
He bore his misery,
His lonely doom.
White hair was on his head,
His long life, nearly sped,
Drooped to the tomb.

Your luck was good before.
To you, untouched by ill,
This sorrow came, but you
Are quick and breathing still.
Your wife is dead. No more
That love abides.
What grief is here that's new?
From many others too
Death robs their brides.
