Alternate Author Name(s): Gilkyson, Walter, Mrs.
Subject(s): Death; Dead, The


DEATH will not frighten me, if death can send
More of earth-living; but I hold the fear
That never will the changing of the year
And earth's wild wonder, moving without end,
Come close again, nor Beauty so unbend
From coldness as today, and come so near,
Touching me all a-tremble; nor the clear
Days of our love be ours again to spend.
For earth has pressed upon me from all ways,—
Mere earth,—of wind and water, wood and lane;
And now by night I shudder, lest I lose
The whole in dying, and the stream of days
Run on unknown, and endless Beauty weave
Her wonder still, through hidden sun and rain.
