The Canterville Ghost

Oscar Wilde

When A Golden Girl Can Win
Prayer From Out The Lips Of Sin,
When The Barren Almond Bears,
And A Little Child Gives Away Its Tears,
Then Shall All The House Be Still
And Peace Come To Canterville.
"Yes, Death. Death must be so beautiful.
To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses
waving above one's head, and listen to silence.
To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow.
To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.
You can help me. You can open for me the portals
of Death's house, for Love is always with you,
and Love is stronger than Death."
