Poem Title:  On The Death Of A Sister

Poem Category:  Thought Provoking/ Sad Poems

Poet:  James Grahame

Poet Biography: 
James Grahame (1765-1811)was from Scotland (Scottish Poet). A minister "to trade", the Rev. James Grahame was the author of "The Sabbath" and many other poems.

Dear to my soul! ah, early lost!
Affection's arm was weak to save:
Now friendship's pride, and virtue's boast,
Have come to an untimely grave!

Closed, ever closed, those speaking eyes,
Where sweetness beam'd, where candour shone;
And silent that heart-thrilling voice,
Which music loved, and call'd her own.

That gentle bosom now is cold,
Where feeling's vestal splendours glow'd;
And crumbling down to common mould,
That heart where love and truth abode.

Yet I behold the smile unfeign'd,
Which doubt dispell'd and kindness won;
Yet the soft diffidence, that gain'd
The triumph it appear'd to shun.

Delusion all
