THEY told me, Heraclitus, they told me you were dead, 

They brought me bitter news to hear and bitter tears to shed. 

I wept as I remember'd how often you and I 

Had tired the sun with talking and sent him down the sky. 

 

And now that thou art lying, my dear old Carian guest,         

A handful of grey ashes, long, long ago at rest, 

Still are thy pleasant voices, thy nightingales, awake; 

For Death, he taketh all away, but them he cannot take. 

 

~ William Johnson cory
