Poetry: Li Po – Sitting Alone by Ching-t’ing Mountain

For once death is dead, swallowed up in Christ's victory, "there's no more dying then."

Poetry: Stevens – Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird

Of memory, laughter, and the following blackbird.

Poetry: Donne – A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning

"Such wilt thou be to me, who must,    Like th' other foot, obliquely run; Thy firmness makes my circle just,    And makes me end where I begun."
