Longfellow Epitaph

17        There is no Death! What seems so is transition;
18           This life of mortal breath
19        Is but a suburb of the life elysian,
20           Whose portal we call Death.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "Resignation" (1886-1991)

On a gravestone in Mt. Auburn Cemetery
