A Coffin—is a small Domain,
Yet able to contain
A Citizen of Paradise
In it diminished Plane.
 
A Grave—is a restricted Breadth—
Yet ampler than the Sun—
And all the Seas He populates
And Lands He looks upon
 
To Him who on its small Repose
Bestows a single Friend—
Circumference without Relief—
Or Estimate—or End—
