WHKN JIM WAS DEAD.
When Jim was d sad,
"Hit served him right," the nabers said,
An 'bused him for the life he'd Jed,
Au' him a-lyin' thar at rest
With not a rose upon his breast!
Ah! menny cruel words they sed
When Jim was dead.
"Jes' killed himself." "Too mean ter live,"
They didn't have one word ter give
Of comfort as they hovered near
An' gazed on Jim a-livin' there!
"Thar ain't no use ter talk," lhev sed
"He's better dead!"
But suddenly the room growed still,
"While God's white sunshine seemed ter
The dark place with a gleam of life
An'o'er the dead she bent Jim's wife!
Au' with her lips close close to his,
As tho' he knew an' felt the kiss,
She sobbed v toughin sight ter see
"Ah Jim was always good ter me!"
I tell you when that come ter light
It kinder set the dead man right;
An' 'roand the weepin' woman they
Thro wed kindly arms of love that day,
And mingled with her own they shed
Thetenderest tears when Jim was dead.
