XII. Love and Death
‘When Death to either shall come’
By Robert Bridges (1844–1930)
 
WHEN Death to either shall come,—
  I pray it be first to me,—
Be happy as ever at home,
  If so, as I wish, it be.
 
Possess thy heart, my own;        5
  And sing to the child on thy knee,
Or read to thyself alone
  The songs that I made for thee.
