Subject:        Question: Short Poem

This is somewhat off-topic, and I'll be happy to receive any responses
off line. Thank you.

I've been trying to track down a short poem beginning "Now is death
merciful; he calls me hence/ Gently, with friendly soothing of my
fears..." The nearest reference I have found classifies it as a
Sixteenth Century Sonnet by R.S. It doesn't sound sixteenth century to
me (but what do I know!) and I've no idea who "R.S." might be. If anyone
can help me, I'd be most grateful.

The last line is "Serene and proud, as when you loved me best."

Thanks.
Mary Rosenberg
