Adieu Adieu ! thy plaintive anthem fades.
Past the near meadows over the still stream,
up the hill-side ; and now ’tis buried deep
in the next valley glades :
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?
Fled is that music:…do I wake or sleep ?
Ode to a nightingale by John KEATS

And today we know the fulness of our gain.

In what furnace was thy brain ?”

Triumphs over Hell and Death”.
