Pour out your light, O stars, and do not hold

Pure and cold your radiance -- pure and cold
  My dead friend's face as well.

Pour out your bounty, moon of radiant shining
  On all this shattered flesh, these quiet forms;
For these were slain, so strangely still reclining
  In the noblest cause was ever waged with arms.
