There is in God (some say) / A deep but dazzling darkness, as men here / Say it is late and dusky because they / See not all clear; / O for that night where I in him / Might live invisible and dim. ~RIP~

'TIS a sad Land, that in one day / Hath dull'd thee thus ; when death shall freeze / Thy blood to ice, and thou must stay / Tenant for years, and centuries ; / How wilt thou brook't ? - Henry Vaughan, "Death. A Dialogue".
