Two Epitaphs
By Walter de la Mare
 
I
YE say we sleep;
But nay, we wake;
Life was that strange and chequered dream
Only for waking’s sake.
 
II
O passer-by, beware!
        5
Is the day fair?—
Yet unto evening shall the day spin on
And soon thy sun be gone;
Then darkness come,
And this, a narrow home.        10
Not that I bid thee fear;
Only, when thou at last lie here,
Bethink thee, there shall only be
      Thyself for company.
