John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:6343
AUTHOR:Leonard Heath
QUOTATION:On a lone barren isle, where the wild roaring billows
  Assail the stern rock, and the loud tempests rave,
The hero lies still, while the dew-drooping willows,
  Like fond weeping mourners, lean over his grave.
The lightnings may flash and the loud thunders rattle;
  He heeds not, he hears not, he’s free from all pain;
He sleeps his last sleep, he has fought his last battle;
  No sound can awake him to glory again!
ATTRIBUTION:The Grave of Bonaparte. 1 
 
Note 1.
