Felicia Dorothea Hemans

Here you will find the Poem Dirge of poet Felicia Dorothea Hemans


CALM on the bosom of thy God, 
   Fair spirit, rest thee now! 
E'en while with ours thy footsteps trod, 
   His seal was on thy brow. 

Dust, to its narrow house beneath! 
   Soul, to its place on high! 
They that have seen thy look in death 
   No more may fear to die.
