down Life's sunless hill?

SHE, TO HIM—I

When you shall see me in the toils of Time,
My lauded beauties carried off from me,
My eyes no longer stars as in their prime,
My name forgot of Maiden Fair and Free;

When in your being heart concedes to mind,
And judgment, though you scarce its process know,
Recalls the excellencies I once enshrined,
And you are irked that they have withered so:

Remembering that with me lies not the blame,
That Sportsman Time but rears his brood to kill,
Knowing me in my soul the very same -
One who would die to spare you touch of ill! -
Will you not grant to old affection's claim
The hand of friendship down Life's sunless hill?
1866.


请教最后两句话。谢谢!

一种理解供参考:
Will you not grant (to old affection's claim)
The hand of friendship down Life's sunless hill?
似乎接近
Will you not grant me (for your old affection's sake)
The hand of friendship (when we are heading) down Life's sunless hill?

down Life's sunless hill呼应前面no longer in prime。old affection呼应My name forgot of Maiden(i.e. maiden name),说明男女双方是夫妻关系。sunless联系前面的That Sportsman Time but rears his brood to kill,似乎有sonless的双关。

谢谢。应该是她死后去的冥界吧。没有阳光,一片黑暗。
