Sapphic Fragment
by [?]

“Thou shalt be–Nothing.”–OMAR KHAYYAM.
“Tombless, with no remembrance.”–W. SHAKESPEARE.

Dead shalt thou lie; and nought
Be told of thee or thought,
For thou hast plucked not of the Muses’ tree:
And even in Hades’ halls
Amidst thy fellow-thralls
No friendly shade thy shade shall company!
