IV. Inevitable
The Genius of Death
By George Croly (1780–1860)
 
WHAT is Death? ’Tis to be free!
  No more to love, or hope, or fear—
To join the great equality:
  All alike are humbled there!
      The mighty grave        5
      Wraps lord and slave;
Nor pride nor poverty dares come
Within that refuge-house, the tomb!
