Edgar Lee Masters (1868–1950).  Spoon River Anthology.  1916.

72. William and Emily


THERE is something about Death 
Like love itself! 
If with some one with whom you have known passion, 
And the glow of youthful love, 
You also, after years of life         5
Together, feel the sinking of the fire, 
And thus fade away together, 
Gradually, faintly, delicately, 
As it were in each other’s arms, 
Passing from the familiar room—  10
That is a power of unison between souls 
Like love itself!
