    Yet spirit immortal, the tomb can not bind thee,
  But like thine own eagle that soars to the sun
Thou springest from bondage and leavest behind thee
  A name which before thee no mortal hath won.
Tho’ nations may combat, and war’s thunders rattle,
  No more on thy steed wilt thou sweep o’er the plain:
Thou sleep’st thy last sleep, thou hast fought thy last battle,
  No sound can awake thee to glory again.
          The Grave of Bonaparte.
 
Benjamin, Earl of Beaconsfield Disraeli. (1804–1881)
