"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.
