THE HOUSE OF DEATH.

It is thy wife! sweet husband, open, quick!

I am a weary wanderer footsore ; My very soul within me turneth sick,

To find thy granite gates are shut so sure And I without !- I am thy weary wife,

Travelling hitherward with painful feet Thro' light and dark a woful half of life To seek thee here.—Thou said'st, We here should

meet, Describing all this place, even as thou past

From my cold arms into the colder night; And now, outweary and outworn at last,

Fainting, with feeble cry and failing sight, Downfall’n my husband's marble house before; He hears me not, he sleeps,—then Death, undo the door!

ANON.
