1588. Death at Daybreak
 
By Anne Reeve Aldrich
 
 
I SHALL go out when the light comes in—
  There lie my cast-off form and face;
I shall pass Dawn on her way to earth,
  As I seek for a path through space.
 
I shall go out when the light comes in;        5
  Would I might take one ray with me!
It is blackest night between the worlds,
  And how is a soul to see?
