Or Did You Love Death?
By Grace Fallow Norton
I GOT your love, lying
  Candles at my head.
I got your love, dying,
  White on my bed.
By your love gifted,        5
  My life saw its span.
By my love lifted,
  I rose and I ran.
I lost your love, living!
  (O stinging sunshine!)        10
I lost your love, striving
  For bread and for wine!
Was it love, crying
  Farewell with faint breath?
Did you love me dying?        15
  Or did you love death?
