Death rides on every passing breeze,
  He lurks in every flower.
      - Reginald Heber, At a Funeral (st. 3)

Birth into this life was the death of the embryo life that preceded; and the death of this will be birth into some new mode of being.
      - Frederic Henry Hedge

Dust, to its narrow house beneath!
  Soul, to its place on high!
    They that have seen thy look in death,
      No more may fear to die.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Not where death hath power may love be blest.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O death!
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

Leaves have their time to fall,
  And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath,
    And stars to set--but all.
      Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, Hour of Death

"Passing away" is written on the world and all the world contains.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, Passing Away

What is Death
  But Life in act? How should the Unteeming Grave
    Be victor over thee,
      Mother, a mother of men?
      - William Ernest Henley, Echoes
         (XLVI, Matri Dilectissimoe)

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,
      - William Ernest Henley, Margaritoe Sorori

So many are the deaths we die
  Before we can be dead indeed.
      - William Ernest Henley, Rhymes and Rhythms

Into the everlasting lull,
  The immortal, incommunicable dream.
      - William Ernest Henley, Rhymes and Rhythms

He whose head is in heaven need not fear to put his feet into the grave.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry

Not lost, but gone before.
      - Matthew (Mathew) Henry, Commentaries,
        title of a song published in "Smith's Edinburgh Harmony",
        Matthew II

They are not amissi, but praemissi;
  Not lost but gone before.
      - Philip Henry,
        as quoted by Mathew Henry in his "Life of Philip Henry"

Those that God loves, do not live long.
      - George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

I know thou art gone to the home of thy rest--
  Then why should my soul be so sad?
    I know thou art gone where the weary are blest,
      And the mourner looks up, and is glad;
        I know thou hast drank of the Lethe that flows
          In a land where they do not forget,
            That sheds over memory only repose,
              And takes from it only regret.
      - Thomas Kibble Hervey, I Know Thou Art Gone

And death makes equal the high and low.
      - John Heywood, Be Merry Friends

Death when to death a death by death hath given
  Then shall be op't the long shut gates of heaven.
    [Mors, mortis morti mortem nisi morte dedisset (dedisses).]
      - Thomas Heywood,
        Nine Books of various History concerning Women
         (bk. II, Of the Sybells)

Many persons sigh for death when it seems far off, but the inclination vanishes when the boat upsets, or the locomotive runs off the track, or the measles set it.
      - Thomas Wentworth Higginson

Oh, stanch thy bootlesse teares, thy weeping is in vain;
  I am not lost, for we in heaven shall one day meet againe.
      - edited by Charles Hindley,
        Roxburghe Ballads--The Bride's Buriall

How frighteningly few are the persons whose death would spoil our appetite and make the world seem empty.
      - Eric Hoffer

And when, in the evening of life, the golden clouds rest sweetly and invitingly upon the golden mountains, and the light of heaven streams down through the gathering mists of death, I wish you a peaceful and abundant entrance into that world of blessedness, where the great riddle of life will be unfolded to you in the quick consciousness of a soul redeemed and purified.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

When darkness gathers over all,
  And the last tottering pillars fall,
    Take the poor dust Thy mercy warms,
      And mould it into heavenly forms.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

The mossy marbles rest
  On the lips that he has pressed
    In their bloom;
      And the names he loved to hear
        Have been carved for many a year
          On the tomb.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., The Last Leaf

Behold--not him we knew!
  This was the prison which his soul looked through.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., The Last Look
