John Bartlett (1820–1905).  Familiar Quotations, 10th ed.  1919.
 
 
NUMBER:6344
AUTHOR:Leonard Heath
QUOTATION:Yet spirit immortal, the tomb can not bind thee,
  But like thine own eagle that soars to the sun
Thou springest from bondage and leavest behind thee
  A name which before thee no mortal hath won.
Tho’ nations may combat, and war’s thunders rattle,
  No more on thy steed wilt thou sweep o’er the plain:
Thou sleep’st thy last sleep, thou hast fought thy last battle,
  No sound can awake thee to glory again.
ATTRIBUTION:The Grave of Bonaparte.
