George William (“A. E.”) Russell (1867–1935).  Collected Poems by A.E.  1913.
 
164. When
 
 
WHEN mine hour is come
Let no teardrop fall
And no darkness hover
Round me where I lie.
Let the vastness call        5
One who was its lover,
Let me breathe the sky.
 
Where the lordly light
Walks along the world,
And its silent tread        10
Leaves the grasses bright,
Leaves the flowers uncurled,
Let me to the dead
Breathe a gay goodnight.
