Three Guests
By Agnes Lee
SHE whispered, “Love is dead.”
She saw the raven hearse go down the street,
And closed her door.
Then Passion rose and pled,
Even more wild, even more fiery-sweet        5
Than Love, before;
And lingered in the room,
Out of an anguished moment to coerce
Dreams that had been:
Till forth into the gloom        10
Passion went following the raven hearse.
And Peace came in.
