“All, all are sleeping on the hill.

  One passed in a fever,
  One was burned in a mine,
  One was killed in a brawl,
  One died in a jail,
  One fell from a bridge toiling for children and wife—
  All, all are sleeping, sleeping, sleeping on the hill.”

Excerpt From: Edgar Lee Masters. “Spoon River Anthology.”
