Portrait study by Franz von Lenbach, c. 1902
JULY 17, 1906
INTO the light where beauty doth not pale,"On the Death of Lady Curzon" by Florence Earle Coates. Published in Lyrics of Life (1909) and Poems (1916) Volume I.
Into the glory that can never fail,
Beyond our yearning care, she passed from view.
Two nations loved and claimed her,—English flower,—
One gave her birth, one gave a regal dower,
But both—ah, both forgot how Heaven must love her too!
Death date in poem is likely incorrect. Most sources cite Wednesday, 18 July 1906.
