Epitaph
By Aubrey Thomas de Vere (1814–1902)
 
HE roam’d half-round the world of woe,
  Where toil and labour never cease;
Then dropp’d one little span below
  In search of peace.
 
And now to him mild beams and showers,        5
  All that he needs to grace his tomb,
From loneliest regions at all hours,
  Unsought-for, come.
