    Default Today I Had

    Today I had a burial of my dead.
    There was no shroud, no coffin, and no pall,
    No prayers were uttered and no tears were shed
    I only turned a picture to the wall.

    A picture that had hung within my room
    For years and years; a relic of my youth.
    It kept the rose of love in constant bloom
    To see those eyes of earnestness and truth.

    At hours wherein no other dared intrude,
    I had drawn comfort from its smiling grace.
    Silent companion of my solitude,
    My soul held sweet communion with that face.

    I lived again the dream so bright, so brief,
    Though wakened as we all are by some Fate;
    This picture gave me infinite relief,
    And did not leave me wholly desolate.

    To-day I saw an item, quite by chance,
    That robbed me of my pitiful poor dole:
    A marriage notice fell beneath my glance,
    And I became a lonely widowed soul.

    With drooping eyes, and cheeks a burning flame,
    I turned the picture to the blank wall's gloom.
    My very heart had died in me of shame,
    If I had left it smiling in my room.

    Another woman's husband. So, my friend,
    My comfort, my sole relic of the past,
    I bury thee, and, lonely, seek the end.
    Swift age has swept my youth from me at last.
