END OF THE WORLD, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: There is a weeping in the world
Last Line: Whereby we too must die.
Subject(s): Bible; Judgment Day; End Of The World; Doomsday; Fall Of Man

There is a weeping in the world,
As though the dear God had met his doom,
And the leaden shadow here unfurled
Is heavy as a tomb.

Come, let us hide, as we have hid so often...
Life in all hearts is lying
As in a coffin.

Dear! we must kiss deeply, you and I—
The world throbs with a longing
Whereby we too must die.
