Write on my gravestone: 'Infidel, Traitor.', infidel to every church that compromises with wrong; traitor to every government that oppresses the people.
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!
Here lies one whose name was writ in water.
An angel visited the green earth, and took a flower away.
I never met a man I didn't like until I met Will Rogers.
Warm summer sun, shine kindly here.
Cast a cold eye on life, on death Horseman pass by
Against you I will fling myself, unvanquished and unyielding, O Death!
And if God choose I shall but love thee better after death.
Mutual love, the crown of all our bliss.
Safe in the hallowed quiets of the past.
She did it the hard way.
Nothing of him that doth fade But doth suffer a sea-change Into something rich and strange
Warm summer sun, shine kindly here. Warm southern wind, blow softly here. Green sod above, lie light, lie light. Good night, dear Heart, Good night, good night.
Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie. Glad did I live and gladly die, And I lay me down with a will. This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be: Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter home from the hill.
Till the master of all good workmen shall set us to work anew.
Death is not a foe, but an inevitable adventure.
If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea...
He hath awakened from the dream of life.
What seems to us but dim funeral tapers may be heaven's distant lamps.
Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.
Music, when soft voices die Vibrates in the memory.
Death is the golden key that opens the palace of eternity.
And alien tears will fill for him pity's long broken urn. For his mourners will all be outcast men, and outcasts always mourn.
This Grave contains all that was Mortal of a Young English Poet Who on his Death Bed in the Bitterness of his Heart at the Malicious Power of his Enemies Desired these words to be engraved on his Tomb Stone "Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water."
