Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XVI. Crossed Hands and Closed Eyes
A Death-bed
By James Aldrich (1810–1856)
 
HER suffering ended with the day,
  Yet lived she at its close,
And breathed that long, long night away,
  In statue-like repose.
 
But when the sun in all its state,        5
  Illumed the eastern skies,
She passed through Glory’s morning-gate,
  And walked in Paradise.
