“Some time, when, in a darkened place
Where others come to weep,
Your eyes shall see a weary face,
Calm in eternal sleep;
The speechless lips, the wrinkled brow,
The patient smile may show
You are too young to know it now
But some time you shall know.”
(E. Field in Sometime)
"I see in you the estuary that enlarges and spreads
itself grandly as it pours in the great sea."
(Walt Whitman in To old age)
Jemeppe sur Meuse (B)
"The dead around were sleeping
On heath and granite grey
And the dying their last watch were keeping
In the closing of the day."
(E. Brontë in The battle has passed from the height)
"The earth is full of graves, and mine was there
Before my life began, my resting-place ;
And I shall find it out and with the dead
Lie down for ever, all my sayings said
Deeds all done and songs all sung ..."
(J. Davidson in The last journey)
