Black Shade

Black shade enters the room.
Glides silently across;
To a patient sleeping in the bed.
Stretches a clammy death hand;
To the patient in the sleeping bed.
Upon the touch one stirs awakes.
The death shade beckons near.
Time to leave this Earthly place;
And walk to the next stage that waits.
Patient leaves the Earthly form
Turns once more to say good-bye;
Then follows the Black Death shade
To the other world unknown.
