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
“Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark !
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;”
“Crossing the bar” by Alfred TENNYSON
South-west of France
“Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so ;
Fot those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor Death, not yet canst thou kill me.”
Death be no proud by John DONNE

Youth was cheap-wherefore we sold it. Gold was good-we hoped to hold it,
And today we know the fulness of our gain.
Christmas in India by Rudyard KIPLING
“One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
and death shall be no more ; Death, thou shall die.”
Death be not proud by John DONNE
