NORA PERRY
American author
(1831 - 1896)

When the baby died we said,
  With a sudden secret dread;
    "Death be merciful and pass;
      Leave the other!"--but alas!
        While we watched he waited there,
          One foot on the golden stair
            One hand beckoning at the gate,
              Till the home was desolate.
      - [Death of Babies]

So sweet, so sweet the roses in their blowing,
  So sweet the daffodils, so fair to see;
    So blithe and gay the humming-bird a going
      From flower to flower, a-hunting with the bee.
      - In June [June]

Some day, some day of days, threading the street
  With idle, heedless pace,
    Unlooking for such grace,
      I shall behold your face!
        Some day, some day of days, thus may we meet.
      - Some Day of Days [Meeting]
