ABSENT THEE FROM FELICITY AWHILE (HAMLET'S DYING WORDS), by            
First Line: When it shall come
Last Line: Absent thee from felicity awhile!


When it shall come,
As come it must,
That I go home
Freed from this dust,
This clogging shell:
Weep no soft tears!
This heart, that hears
Your grief, knows well
Your sorrow; but, with a smile,
ABSENT THEE FROM FELICITY AWHILE!

Do not beguile
The hour with dance or song!
But, let your heart be strong
To think of me
As one set free
From pain and wrong!
So, with a smile,
ABSENT THEE FROM FELICITY AWHILE!

In some dim isle,
Where spirits roam,
I shall forget
The crash and foam,
The fever and the fret
Of tired life;
While you, left in the strife,
Still, with a smile,
ABSENT THEE FROM FELICITY AWHILE!
