Delia

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

Sweet as the tender fragrance that survives,

When martyred flowers breathe out their little lives,

Sweet as a song that once consoled our pain,

But will never be sung to us again,

Is thy remembrance. Now the hour of rest

Hath come to thee. Sleep, darling; it is best.
