Robert Louis Stevenson

Requiem

From Underwoods
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;
Here he lies where he longed to be,
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
  And the hunter home from the hill.
