A CROSS-ROAD EPITAPH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: When first the world grew dark to me
Last Line: Death, on thee only did I call.


"Am Kreuzweg wird begraben
Wer selber brachte sich um."

WHEN first the world grew dark to me
I call'd on God, yet came not he.
Whereon, as wearier wax'd my lot,
On Love I call'd, but Love came not.
When a worse evil did befall,
Death, on thee only did I call.
