Poem Title:  Love And Death

Poem Category:  Love Poems

Poet:  Francis William Lauderdale Adams

Poet Biography: 
Francis William Lauderdale Adams (1862-1893) was regarded as a brilliant young Australian (Australia) poet.



Poem: 
Death? is it death you give? So be it! O Death,
thou hast been long my friend, and now thy pale
cool cheek shall have my kiss, while the faint breath
expires on thy still lips, O lovely Death!

Come then, loose hands, fair Life, without a wail!
We've had good hours together, and you were sweet
what time love whispered with the nightingale,
tho' ever your music by the lark's would fail.

Come then, loose hands! Our lover time is done.
Now is the marriage with the eternal sun.
The hours are few that rest, are few and fleet.
Good-bye! The game is lost: the game is won.
