Sealed so stately tight-
Lids of Steel-on Lids of Marble-
Locking Bare feet out-

Brooks of Plush-in Banks of Satin
Not so softly fall
As the laughter-and the whisper-
From their People Pearl-

No Bald Death-affront their Parlors-
No Bold Sickness come
To deface their Stately Treasures-
Anguish-and the Tomb-

Hum by-in Muffled Coaches-
Lest they-wonder Why-
Any-for the Press of Smiling-
Interrupt-to die-
