Black Book, John Burgess P24-25

To the Dead.

Gone art thou- gone? And is the light of day
Still shining- is my hair not touched with joy?
But evening draweth nigh. I pass the door
And see the walking on the dim lit shore
Gone art thou-gone; and weary by? the brink
Of Lethe waiting their? Oh do not drink
Drink not-forgit not. Wait a little while;
I shall be with this we again may smile.


In Memory

Full many moons have swelled the tide of life's great shoreless Sea,
Since Dear Annie became my bride
and gave up all for me.
In Heaven they lived my sweet
Annie, for earth to pure and fair;
They called her to the summerland?
She lives just over there"
