First Line: In shrouds distinct, on palls apart
Last Line: To bid corruption start.
Subject(s): Death; Graves; Dead, The; Tombs; Tombstones


In shrouds distinct, on palls apart
The latest ones to tire
Arrange their waxen limbs with care
And piously expire.
A common hope dilates each breast,
One spark glows in each eye,
A spasm uniform to all
Provokes the strength to die.
The lips creased deep with pain compose
A feverish syllable,
The halting tongue revives to phrase
The name impeccable,
And "God," emits the swooning brain,
And "Love," taps out the heart,
And "Death," concludes the failing breath,
To bid corruption start.
