Sunday Poem: Robert Louis Stevenson – Requiem

Robert Louis Stevenson. 1850–1894
  
Requiem
  
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:          5
Here he lies where he long’d to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
  And the hunter home from the hill.
