In Memoriam A.H.H.

         
            XXV.
             
      I know that this was Life,–the track
          Whereon with equal feet we fared;
          And then, as now, the day prepared
      The daily burden for the back.

      But this it was that made me move
          As light as carrier-birds in air;
          I loved the weight I had to bear,
      Because it needed help of Love:

      Nor could I weary, heart or limb,
          When mighty Love would cleave in twain
          The lading of a single pain,
      And part it, giving half to him.
