TUBEROSES

 

In the faint tuberose fragrances, oblivion sending
On the last night, that never gazes on a morn,
My soul departs in sleep, to which there is no ending,
As if by heat of angels' wings to rest 'twere borne.

In the faint tuberose fragrances, oblivion sending,
My hopes, my longings, unfulfilled to rest are laid,
And like a shadow, like a dream undreamed are wending
After my spirit's shade.

 

"Conversations with Death" (1905).
