Cornwall, B. (n.d.). History of a Life. Retrieved from


Excerpt: DAY dawned: - within a curtained room, // Filled to faintness with perfume, // A lady lay at point of doom. // Day closed; - a child had seen the light; // But, for the lady fair and bright, // She rested in undreaming night. // Spring rose; the lady's grave was green; // And near it, oftentimes, was seen // A gentle boy with thoughtful mien. // Years fled; - he wore a manly face, // And struggled in the world's rough race, // And won at last a lofty place. // And then he died! Behold before ye // Humanity's poor sum and story; // Life, - Death, - and all that is of glory.
