The Bourne by Christina Rossetti

Underneath the growing grass,

Underneath the living flowers,

Deeper than the sound of showers:

There we shall not count the hours

By the shadows as they pass.

Youth and health will be but vain,

Beauty reckoned of no worth:

There a very little girth
Can hold round what once the earth

Seemed too narrow to contain.
