An Anthology in Eleven Volumes.  1891.
Vols. IX–XI: Literature of the Republic, Part IV., 1861–1889
 
Requiescat
By James Benjamin Kenyon (1858–1924)
 
[From In Realms of Gold. 1887.]

SHE sleeps, and may her peaceful rest
          Unbroken be;
The flowers that nod above her breast
          She cannot see;
To warbling bird, to purling brook,        5
          Deaf are her ears;
Sealed is the volume of the book
          Of her brief years.
So let her rest; she will not heed
          The tales they tell;        10
She recks not now of word or deed—
          She slumbers well.
