MARMOREAL hands across unbreathing breasts:
How dreamfully the sleepers seem to lie.
Like that strange, hallowed trance that is the west's
When sundown reaves all motion from the sky.
Peace, the great word; peace from remembered days
Of tumult quieted to perfect calm;
How wiped away the salt untranquil tears
Of souls who rest on the Almighty arm!
