Rispetto: III
By A. Mary F. Robinson
AH, Love, I cannot die, I cannot go
  Down in the dark and leave you all alone,
Ah, hold me fast, safe in the warmth I know,
  And never shut me underneath a stone.
Dead in the grave! And I can never hear        5
If you are ill, or if you miss me, dear,
Dead, oh, my God! and you may need me yet,
While I shall sleep, while I—while I—forget!
