Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

136. Look Down, Fair Moon


LOOK down, fair moon, and bathe this scene; 
Pour softly down night’s nimbus floods, on faces ghastly, swollen, purple; 
On the dead, on their backs, with their arms toss’d wide, 
Pour down your unstinted nimbus, sacred moon.
