618. Music, when Soft Voices die
  
MUSIC, when soft voices die, 
Vibrates in the memory; 
Odours, when sweet violets sicken, 
Live within the sense they quicken. 
 
Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,         5
Are heap'd for the belovèd's bed; 
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone, 
Love itself shall slumber on.
