“Since I have felt the sense of death, / Since I have borne its dread, its fear — Oh, how my life has grown more dear / Since I have felt the sense of death! / Sorrows are good, and cares are small, / Since I have known the loss of all.”
“Since I have felt the sense of death, / And death forever at my side — / Oh, how the world has opened wide / Since I have felt the sense of death! / My hours are jewels that I spend / For I have seen the hours end.”
Helen Hoyt, U.S. poet
(1887 - 1972)
Full name: Helen Hoyt Lyman.
