They are all gone into the World of Light!
And I alone sit lingering here! Their very memory is fair and bright
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
It glows and glitters in my cloudy breast,
Like stars upon some gloomy grove.
After the sun's remove.
I see them walking in an air of glory
Whose light doth trample on my days;
Mere glimmering and decays.
Henry Vaughan: SiUx Scintillans, 1655.
