Requiem

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
 
UNDER 1 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.
 
Note 1. Stevenson. Requiem, from ‘Underwoods’. [back]
