by Lizette Woodworth Reese
 A rhyme of good Death's inn!
 My love came to that door;
And she had need of many things,
 The way had been so sore.
My love she lifted up her head, "And is there room?" said she; "There was no room in Bethlehem's inn For Christ who died for me.
" But said the keeper of the inn, "His name is on the door.
" My love then straightway entered there: She hath come back no more.

by Lizette Woodworth Reese
 Love came back at fall o' dew,
Playing his old part;
But I had a word or two
That would break his heart.
"He who comes at candlelight, That should come before, Must betake him to the night From a barred door.
" This the word that made us part In the fall o' dew; This the word that brake his heart -- Yet it brake mine, too.
