A CEMETERY, by             Poem Explanation     Poet's Biography
First Line: This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies
Last Line: Then ceased like these.
Subject(s): Cemeteries; Graveyards

THIS quiet Dust was Gentlemen and Ladies,
And Lads and Girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls.
This passive place a Summer's nimble mansion,
Where Bloom and Bees
Fulfilled their Oriental Circuit,
Then ceased like these.
