Rendezvous


Death, I am here
waiting with the darkness
that you collect
in your velvet casket.
The pretty stars that were
my childlike eyes
have lost their light.
I am as cold and still
as a statue,
but without fright.
There are no shadows here
to worry me.
I cannot call to you
but you will hear my silence,
it is quieter than velvet.
You will carry me with ease
because I no longer exist.
Darkness lay me softly
on your black pillow of night.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
