Dinah Maria Mulock Craik: Buried today
Victor Hugo: Tomorrow, as soon as it is dawn

Ben Jonson: The pleasures of Heaven


There all the happy souls that ever were,
shall meet with gladness in one theatre;
and each shall know there one another’s face,
by beatific virtue of the place.
There shall the brother with the sister walk,
and sons and daughters with their parents talk;
but all of God: they still shall have to say,
but make him all in all their theme that day:
that happy day that never shall see night!
    --Ben Jonson (1572-1637)
