For I know that Death is a guest divine,
  Who shall drink my blood as I drink this wine;
    And he cares for nothing! a king is he--
      Come on, old fellow, and drink with me!
        With you I will drink to the solemn past,
          Though the cup that I drain should be my last.
      - Orgia--The Song of a Ruined Man [Death]

Ambition has but one reward for all:
  A little power, a little transient fame,
    A grave to rest in, and a fading name!
      - The Queen's Domain (l. 90) [Ambition]

Bring poppies for a weary mind
  That saddens in a senseless din.
      - The White Flag [Poppies]
