Original text and translations
Thy soul shall find itself alone,
'Mid dark thoughts of the gray tombstone--
Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
Into thine hour of secrecy.
Be silent in that solitude,
Which is not loneliness-- for then
The spirits of the dead,
Who stood in life before thee are again
In death around thee, and their will
Shall overshadow thee; be still.
