Love’s Change
By Anne Reeve Aldrich
 
I WENT to dig a grave for Love,
  But the earth was so stiff and cold
That, though I strove through the bitter night,
  I could not break the mould.
 
And I said: “Must he lie in my house in state,        5
  And stay in his wonted place?
Must I have him with me another day,
  With that awful change in his face?”
