331. A Death-Bed
 
By James Aldrich
 
 
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!
