 When my grave is broke up again
        Some second guest to entertain
        (For graves have learned that womanhead:
        To be to more then one a bed),
             and he that digs it spies
     A bracelet of bright hair about the bone,                  
             Will he not let's alone,
     And think that there a loving couple lies,
     Which thought that this device might be some way
     To make their souls at the last, busy day,
     Meet at this grave, and make a little stay?
