Dirge
By Charles Gamage Eastman (1816–1860)
 
[From Poems. Revised and Complete Edition. 1880.]

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.
