THE PAUPER'S DEATH BED. Tuiai) softly—bow the head— III reverent silence bow— *o passing bell doth toll,— j let an immortal soul Is passing now. Stranger! however great, With lowly reverence bow, There's one in that poor slied- One by that paltry bed- Greater than thou. beneath that beggar's roof, I.o! Death doth keep his state: Eater— no crowds attend- filter—no guards defend This palace gate. Th\it pavement damp and cold No smiling courtiers tread; silent woman stands Lifting with meagre hands A dying head. No mingling voices sound— An infant wail alonc; A sob suppress'd—agen That short deep gasp, and then The parting groan. Oh! change—Oh! wondrous change— Burst are the prison bars- This moment tltere, so low, So agonised, and now Beyond the stars! Oh! chan ge- stupendous change! There lies the soulless clod; The sun eternal breaks- The new Immortal wakes- Wakes with his God. Mus. SOUTHEY.
