This's my favorite poem in, like, ever.  Here's the first stanza, my favorite:

"And death shall have no dominion.

Dead men naked they shall be one

With the man in the wind and the west moon;

When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,

They shall have stars at elbow and foot;

Though they go mad they shall be sane,

Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;

Though lovers be lost love shall not;

And death shall have no dominion."

 



I'm told he wrote it in the aftermath of WWI and that might be true, though I believe it's dated later than that, nearer to WWII.  It's beautiful, no matter what he wrote it for.  Gives me goosebumps.
