Strew on her roses
Read the following poem carefully:
Strew on her roses, roses,
And never a spray of yew!
In quiet she reposes:
Ah, would that I did too;
Her mirth the world required;
She bathed it in smiles of glee
But her heart was tired, tired,
And now they let her be
Her life was turning, turning,
In mazes of heat and sound
But for peace her soul was yearning,
Her cabined, ample spirit,
It fluttered and failed for breath.
Tonight it doth inherit
The vast hall of death.
