| Closed as a shrine.|
|Then saw in death his eyelids close|
Calmly, as to a nights repose,
Like flowers at set of sun.
| 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.|
|Crept to the gate, and opend it, and closed,|
As lightly as a sick mans chamber-door.
