FREDERIC LAWRENCE KNOWLES
American poet and editor
(1859 - 1905)

In the ink of our sweat we will find it yet,
  The song that is fit for men!
      - [Songs]

It takes two for a kiss
  Only one for a sigh,
    Twain by twain we marry
      One by one we die.
      - Grief and Joy [Companionship]

Joy is a partnership,
  Grief weeps alone,
    Many guests had Cana;
      Gethsemane but one.
      - Grief and Joy [Companionship]

If Love were jester at the court of Death,
  And Death the king of all, still would I pray,
    "For me the motley and the bauble, yea,
      Though all be vanity, as the Preacher saith,
        The mirth of love be mine for one brief breath!"
      - If Love were Jester at the Court of Death
        [Love]

Nay, why should I fear Death,
  Who gives us life, and in exchange takes breath?
      - Laus Mortis [Death]

When I have folded up this tent
  And laid the soiled thing by,
    I shall go forth 'neath different stars,
      Under an unknown sky.
      - The Last Word [Death]
