Poem by Amy Levy


A Cross-Road Epitaph


         Am Kruzweg wird begraben 
         Wer selber brachte divh um.

WHEN first the world grew dark to me
I call'd on God, yet came not he.
Whereon, as wearier waxed my lot,
On Love I call'd, but Love came not.
When a worse evil did befall,
Death, on thee only did I call.
