EPILOGUE.

Spoken by a Daughter of Eve, who is weeping, and an Angel,
who looks out of fashion.

The Angel.

This is only sorrow
For To-Day.
Life begins To-Morrow!

A Daughter of Eve.

So they say.

The Angel.

Life with one love and laughter
Gay and free—
Yet no heartache after.

A Daughter of Eve.

Can it be?

The Angel.

Life with work that reaches
To the sky;
Life that never teaches
How to die.
Life that is eternal,
Ever young,
