  • A poem by Andrew Marvell.

  • My favorite lines -

    The grave's a fine and private place,

    but none, I think, do there embrace.


    Time's wing'ed chariot, hurrying near

    They sure knew how to turn a phrase, back in the day. Marvell, Donne - great stuff.

  • I thought Marvell only wrote comics.
