The last Night that She lived

 The last Night that She lived
It was a Common Night
Except the Dying -- this to Us
Made Nature different

We noticed smallest things --
Things overlooked before
By this great light upon our Minds
Italicized -- as 'twere.
As We went out and in Between Her final Room And Rooms where Those to be alive Tomorrow were, a Blame That Others could exist While She must finish quite A Jealousy for Her arose So nearly infinite -- We waited while She passed -- It was a narrow time -- Too jostled were Our Souls to speak At length the notice came.
She mentioned, and forgot -- Then lightly as a Reed Bent to the Water, struggled scarce -- Consented, and was dead -- And We -- We placed the Hair -- And drew the Head erect -- And then an awful leisure was Belief to regulate --
