A Cross-Road Epitaph


Amy Levy

"Am Kreuzweg wird begraben

Wer selber brachte sich um."

When first the world grew dark to me

I call’d on God, yet came not he.

Whereon, as wearier wax’d my lot,

On Love I call’d, but Love came not.

When a worse evil did befall,

Death, on thee only did I call.

Go Back
