Si Quicquam Mutis Gratum

If any comfort reach the grieving from the grave,
Know this, friend, while you, fond and sad, recall
The Love in life disdained, for whom our tears now fall:
Death holds for her no pain as bold or brave
As was the love she held for you, her joy, her all.

Trans. from the Latin by Thomas Banks
