NUMBER:8050
AUTHOR:Robert Louis Stevenson (1850–1894)
QUOTATION: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 the sea,
  And the hunter home from the hill.”
ATTRIBUTION:Requiem (and Epitaph).
