Stevenson, Robert Louis (1850–1894).  A Child’s Garden of Verses and Underwoods.  1913.
  
XXI. Requiem

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:         5
Here he lies where he longed to be; 
Home is the sailor, home from sea, 
  And the hunter home from the hill.
