Rhymes A La Mode - Death


(AEsch., Fr., 156.)

Of all Gods Death alone
Disdaineth sacrifice:
No man hath found or shown
The gift that Death would prize.
In vain are songs or sighs,
Paaen, or praise, or moan,
Alone beneath the skies
Hath Death no altar-stone!

There is no head so dear
That men would grudge to Death;
Let Death but ask, we give
All gifts that we may live;
But though Death dwells so near,
We know not what he saith.

The Isles of the Blessed(Pindar, Fr., 106, 107 (95): B. 4, 129-130, 109 (97): B. 4, 132) Now the light of the sun, in the night of the Earth, on the souls of the TrueShines, and their city is girt with the meadow where reigneth the rose;And deep is the shade of the woods, and the wind that flits o'er them and throughSings of the sea, and is sweet from the isles where the frankincense blows:Green is their garden and orchard, with rare fruits golden it glows,And the souls of the Blessed are glad in the pleasures on Earth that they knew,And
