Blair : The Grave. Line 232 Here the o’erloaded slave flings down his burden From his galld shoulders; and, when the cruel tyrant, With all his guards and tools of power about him, Is meditating new, unheard of hardships, Mocks his short arm, and, quick as thought, escapes Where tyrants vex not, and the weary rest. 2005

James Montgomery: The Grave Where is the house for all the living found? Go ask the deaf, the dumb, the dead; All answer, without voice or sound, Each resting in his bed; Look down and see, Beneath thy feet, A place for thee;
There all the living meet.
2008 James Montgomery : In Mem. of the Rev. James Harvey. I like that ancient Saxon phrase which calls The burial-ground, God's Acre! It is just; It consecrates each grave within its walls, And breathes a benison o'er the sleeping dust.
Into its furrows shall we all be cast,
Longfellow : God's Acre.
Longfellow: Psalm of Life. The most magnificent and costly dome, Is but an upper chamber to a tomb; No spot on earth but has supplied a grave, And human skulls the spacious ocean pave.
