And signed for all that bounded their domain;
This suits me for a pasture; that’s my park;
We must have clay, lime, gravel, granite-ledge,
(ii) The Past!. the past! the past!
The Past-the dark unfathom’d retrospect!
The teeming gulf-the sleepers and the shadows!
The past-the infinite greatness of the part!
For what is the present after all but a growth
out of the past?
(iii) Because I could not stop for Death–

(iv) Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread.
Walk the deck my captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.
