F
Trust that those we call the dead
Are breathers of an ampler day.

R
Thou madest man, he knows not why.
A
Upon the middle of the night.
Waking she heard the night-fowl crow.
N
The woods decay, the woods decay and fall,
The vapours weep their burthen to the ground,
Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,
And after many a summer dies the swan.
K
Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark; For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crost the bar.
