After Death
The curtains were half drawn, the floor was swept
And strewn with rushes, rosemary and may
Lay thick upon the bed on which I lay,
...

When I am dead, my dearest,
Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head,
Nor shady cypress tree:

A night was near, a day was near,
Between a day and night
I heard sweet voices calling clear,

Within her misty veil:
She scales the sky from east to west,

Tinkle tinkle well;
Bring me wine, bring me flowers,
Ring the silver bell.
...
90.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
