 O EARTH, lie heavily upon her eyes; 
 Seal her sweet eyes weary of watching, Earth; 
 Lie close around her; leave no room for mirth 
With its harsh laughter, nor for sound of sighs.
She hath no questions, she hath no replies, Hush'd in and curtain'd with a blessed dearth Of all that irk'd her from the hour of birth; With stillness that is almost Paradise.
Darkness more clear than noonday holdeth her, Silence more musical than any song; Even her very heart has ceased to stir: Until the morning of Eternity Her rest shall not begin nor end, but be; And when she wakes she will not think it long.
