Love is that later Thing than Death

Love is that later Thing than Death
More previous than Life
Confirms it at its entrance And
Usurps it of itself

Tastes Death the first to hand the sting
The Second to its friend
Disarms the little interval
Deposits Him with God

Then hovers an inferior Guard
Lest this Beloved Charge
Need once in an Eternity
A smaller than the Large
