At the Grave of Henry Vaughan

Above the voiceful windings of a river An old green slab of simply graven stone Shuns notice, overshadowed by a yew. Here Vaughan lies dead, whose name flows on for ever Through pastures of the spirit washed with dew And starlit with eternities unknown. Here sleeps the Silurist; the loved physician; The face that left no portraiture behind; The skull that housed white angels and had vision Of daybreak through the gateways of the mind. Here faith and mercy, wisdom and humility (Whose influence shall prevail for evermore) Shine. And this lowly grave tells Heaven’s tranquillity And here stand I, a suppliant at the door.

Siegfried Sassoon.
