A Dirge
By Felicia Dorothea Hemans (1793–1835)
CALM on the bosom of thy God,
  Fair spirit, rest thee now!
Ee’n while with us thy footstep trod,
  His seal was on thy brow.
Dust, to its narrow house beneath!        5
  Soul, to its place on high!—
They that have seen thy look in death
  No more may fear to die.
