I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.john masefield
I wept that all must die —"Yet Love," I cried, "doth live, and conquer death —"And Time passed by,And breathed on Love, and killed it with his breathEre Death was nigh.More bitter far than allIt was to know that Love could change and die —Hush! for the ages call"The Love of God lives through eternity,And conquers all!"adelaide anne procter
Rain, rain, and sun! a rainbow in the sky! Ayoung man will be wiser byand by; An old man's wit may wander ere he die.Tennyson
You will eat, byand by, In that glorious land above the sky; Work and pray, live on hay, You'll get pie in the sky when you die.
