George Willis Cooke, comp.  The Poets of Transcendentalism: An Anthology.  1903.
 
One about to die
By Ellen Sturgis Hooper (1812–1848)
 
OH, melancholy liberty
Of one about to die—
When friends, with a sad smile,
And aching heart the while,
Every caprice allow,        5
Nor deem it worth while now
To check the restless will
Which death so soon shall still.
