Two Epitaphs
--Walter de la Mare 
...........I
Ye say we sleep;
But nay, we wake;
Life was that strange and chequered dream
Only for waking’s sake. 
...........II
O passer-by, beware!
Is the day fair?—
Yet unto evening shall the day spin on
And soon thy sun be gone;
Then darkness come,
And this, a narrow home.
Not that I bid thee fear;
Only, when thou at last lie here,
Bethink thee, there shall only be
.....Thyself for company.
