"There is no death!" An angel form
Walks o'er the earth with silent tread.
He bears our best beloved away,
And then we call them dead.

He leaves our hearts so desolate-
He plucks our fairest, sweetest flowers;
Transplanted into heaven, they now
Adorn immortal bowers.

And ever near us though unseen,
These pure immortal spirits tread
For all the boundless universe
Is life- there is no dead."
