Strew on her roses, roses,

And never a spray of yew!

In quiet she reposes;

Ah, would that I did too!

Her mirth the world required;

She bathed it in smiles of glee.

But her heart was tired, tired,

And now they let her be.

Her life was turning, turning,

In mazes of heat and sound.

But for peace her soul was yearning,

And now peace laps her round.

Her cabined ample spirit,

It fluttered and failed for breath.

Tonight it doth inherit

The vasty hall of death.

.: :.

It sounds as if she (the dead one) suffered from depression. At first she was happy but eventually sadness to took over. In the end she killed herself and finally found peace. The first stanza is the speaker looking down at the corpse. The second stanza shows how at first she was happy but then eventually depression wore her out so much she didn't even care anymore. When they say "And now they let her be" it makes it sound like she finally escaped from the tiredness. Third stanza describes once again describes how her life went by too quickly "In mazes of heat and sound" But she didn't care anymore. All she wants is peace and after she dies she is finally at peace. The last stanza describes how finally she went to rest.It's gives chills but in the end she got peace in death when she couldn't find it in life. The speaker I believe knew her quite well. Well enough to know she was suffering and had finally found peace. Yes this a poem about death but the author makes it be peaceful, a troubled soul coming to rest at last.
