Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250–1900.
Robert Bridges. b. 1844
840. When Death to Either shall come
WHEN Death to either shall come,— 
  I pray it be first to me,— 
Be happy as ever at home, 
  If so, as I wish, it be. 
Possess thy heart, my own;         5
  And sing to the child on thy knee, 
Or read to thyself alone 
  The songs that I made for thee.
