"A Arundel Tombn"
For (as you will guess) it was death I had in mind;
Who covets our breath, who seeks and will always find;
To keep out of his thought was my whole care,
Yet down among sunlit courts, yes, he was there,
Taking his rents....
Philip Larkin (1922–1986), British poet. "Unfinished Poem."
