    Your father was ever virtuous, and holy men at their death have good inspirations.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    and the oxen near
    The worn foundations of their resting-place,
    The holy manger where their bed is corn
    And holly torn for Christmas. If they die,
    As Jesus, in the harness, who will mourn?
    Lamb of the shepherds, Child, how still you lie.
    Robert Lowell (1917–1977)
