Armour Allen Porter, September 16, 1924-August 18, 2008

Under the wide and starry sky,

Dig the grave and let me lie.

Glad did I live and gladly die,

And I laid me down with a will.


This be the verse you grave for me;

Here he lies where he longed to be,

Home is the sailor, home from the sea,

And the hunter, home from the hill.



Robert Louis Stevenson, “Requiem”
