|AUTHOR:||Robert Louis Stevenson (18501894)|
|QUOTATION:||Under the wide and starry sky|
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live, and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies, where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
