Requiescat

         
      Fair is her cottage in its place,
          Where yon broad water sweetly, slowly glides.
      It sees itself from thatch to base
          Dream in the sliding tides.

      And fairer she, but ah, how soon to die!
          Her quiet dream of life this hour may cease.
      Her peaceful being slowly passes by
          To some more perfect peace.
