Letitia Elizabeth Landon Quote

His shroud was damp, his face was white:
He said,—"I cannot sleep,
Your tears have made my shroud so wet;
Oh, mother, do not weep!"
Oh, love is strong!—the mother's heart
Was filled with tender fears;
Oh, love is strong!—and for her child
Her grief restrained its tears.


The Little Shroud from The London Literary Gazette (28th April 1832) - The Vow of the Peacock (1835)
