Youll find -- it when you try to die --

 You'll find -- it when you try to die --
The Easier to let go --
For recollecting such as went --
You could not spare -- you know.
And though their places somewhat filled -- As did their Marble names With Moss -- they never grew so full -- You chose the newer names -- And when this World -- sets further back -- As Dying -- say it does -- The former love -- distincter grows -- And supersedes the fresh -- And Thought of them -- so fair invites -- It looks too tawdry Grace To stay behind -- with just the Toys We bought -- to ease their place --
