THE UNQUIET GRAVE
v
' You crave one kiss of my clay-cold lips;
But my breath smells earthy strong; If you have one kiss of my clay-cold lips, Your time will not be long.

The finest flower that ere was seen Is wither' d to a stalk.

6 The stalk is witherM dry, my love, So will our hearts decay;
So maKe yourself content, my love, Till God calls you away.'
