Background

A description of the experience

William Ernest Henley – from Margaritae Sorori I M

A late lark twitters from the quiet skies;
And from the west
Where the sun, his day’s work ended
Lingers as in content,
There falls on the old, grey city
An influence luminous and serene
A shining peace

So be my passing!
My task accomplished and the long day done
My wages taken, and in my heart
Some late lark singing
Let me be gathered to the quiet west
The sundown splendid and serene
Death

The source of the experience

Yerka, Jacek
