  Closed as a shrine.
            —Anonymous

Then saw in death his eyelids close
Calmly, as to a night’s repose,
Like flowers at set of sun.
            —Fitz-Greene Halleck

  Closed his eyes, like a priest who at evening service closes the gold tabernacle after Benediction.
            —Guy de Maupassant

  Closed over their trail as the waves of the ocean close in the wake of a ship.
            —Theodore Roosevelt
  4
Crept to the gate, and open’d it, and closed,
As lightly as a sick man’s chamber-door.
            —Alfred Tennyson
