rapid march of ghostly death to Pale pale she knelt the cordial in her hand While on hearth dismally the Her limbs awhile unwonted feelings shook And deeper grew her wretchedness of Her arms then folding on her sunken She strore tu calm its throbbing into rest Nor vainly strove for banishing despair From her thin lips in murmurs broke the prayer And sweetly culm and she rose Her brow the aspect wearing of repose Ah with the hush of dreamy midnight came No healthful rest to her exhausted The fine expansion of her form was gone But love gave to her The bright of her cheek had fled And
