V. Death and Bereavement
On a Grave at Grindelwald
Frederic William Henry Myers (1843–1901)
 
HERE let us leave him; for his shroud the snow,
  For funeral-lamps he has the planets seven,
For a great sign the icy stair shall go
  Between the heights to heaven.
 
One moment stood he as the angels stand,        5
  High in the stainless eminence of air;
The next, he was not, to his fatherland
  Translated unaware.
