Edmund Clarence Stedman, ed. (1833–1908).  An American Anthology, 1787–1900.  1900.
 
332. Dirge
 
By Charles Gamage Eastman
 
 
SOFTLY!
  She is lying
    With her lips apart;
Softly!
  She is dying        5
    Of a broken heart.
 
Whisper!
  Life is growing
    Dim within her breast;
Whisper!        10
  She is going
    To her final rest.
 
Gently!
  She is sleeping,
    She has breathed her last!        15
Gently!
  While you ’re weeping
    She to heaven has passed.
