THE DEAD

Blow out, you bugles, over the
rich dead!
There's none of these so lonely
and poor of old,
But dying, has made us rarer gifts
than gold.
These laid the world away; poured
out the red
Sweet wine of youth; gave up the
years to be
Of works and joy, and that unhoped
serene,
That men call age; and those
who would have been
Their sons, they gave their
immortality.

Rupert Brooke
