ON THE MOON-LIGHT SHINING UPON A FRIEND'S GRAVE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Show not, o moon! With pure and liquid beam
Last Line: And after bury'd friends are doom'd to live.
Subject(s): Graves; Tombs; Tombstones


SHOW not, O Moon! with pure and liquid beam,
That mournful spot, where Memory fears to tread;
Glance on the grove, or quiver in the stream,
Or tip the hills -- but shine not on the dead:
It wounds the lonely hearts that still survive,
And after bury'd friends are doom'd to live.
