Marble slab engraved - I cannot say, and I will not say that he is dead, he is just away! With a cherry smile and a wave of the hand, he has wondered into an unknown land and left us dreaming how very fair it needs must be since he lingers there and you, O you, who the wildest yearn for the old time step and the glad return. Think of him still as the same, I say he is not dead.
