Robert Louis Stevenson. 1850–1894
848. 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 long'd to be; 
Home is the sailor, home from sea, 
  And the hunter home from the hill.
