MIRRORS OF LIFE AND DEATH.
THE mystery of Life, the mystery
Of Death, I see
Darkly as in a glass ;
Their shadows pass,
And talk with me.
As the flush of a Morning Sky,
As a Morning Sky colorless —
Each yields its measure of light
To a wet world or a dry ;
Each fares through day to night
With equal pace,
And then each one
As the Sun with glory and grace
In his face,
