V. Death and Bereavement
A Death-Bed
James Aldrich (1810–1856)
 
HER suffering ended with the day;
  Yet lived she at its close,
And breathed the long, long night away,
  In statue-like repose.
 
But when the sun, in all his state,        5
  Illumed the eastern skies,
She passed through glory’s morning-gate,
  And walked in Paradise!
