How do I know that the dead repent of
having previously clung to life?

is like passing quietly through the gate
in a pasture fence. On the other side,

wooden gate in a clearing.
Neither pain, nor floods of light, nor great voices,
but just the silent crossing of a meadow.

their skies one by one.

‘Tis the maddest trick a man can ever play in his whole life,
to let his breath sneak out of his body without any more ado,

these dead people govern our lives, we should
go mad with horror.
