The Death Watch
By Mary Carolyn Davies
A TREE falls in the blast,
  The other trees are sighing;
Fast burn the candles—fast.
  She is long dying.
A flower fades in the sun,        5
  The other flowers are weeping;
See! Dawn’s at last begun.
  Dead—or but sleeping?
A star falls, tired from flight,
  The other stars are flying;        10
It is o’erpast, the night—
  She is long dying.
