History, grad school, and gravestones!
"some are born to endless night"
I came across a good graveyard poem for the seaport towns like Newport and Marblehead: The House-Top Walk by Charles Thompson. (I'd always heard them called Widows' Walks.)It's not a literary masterpiece, but it is a nice little collection of lines reminding us that "some are asleep in the graveyard there / And some in the wandering sea."
