THE DEATH WATCH, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The young moon early slipped away
Last Line: In the long ago.


The young moon early slipped away
And left the stars to watch with me
A shape that trailed his summer cloak
By the quiet sea.

And there beside the summer sea
Under a vastness star-beguiled,
Young Death heard all I had to say,
Everything, and smiled.

Though this was only yester-eve,
He seemed Someone I used to know,
Someone more close to me than life
In the long ago.
