Alternate Author Name(s): Nerval, Gerard De
Subject(s): Future Life; Retribution; Eternity; After Life

WHAT doth our loves befall?
They lie far underground!
And happier they who all
Have fairer dwelling found!

They are nigh the seraph throng
In skies that have no shade,
And worship with sweet song
God's Mother, the pure Maid.

O spotless spouse unta'en!
O maiden-flower in leaf!
Girl-lover left in pain
Alone and scarred with grief!

Deep everlasting mirth
Shines out from your bright eyes ...
Brands once put out on Earth,
Flame on in Paradise!
