Edward Shanks (1892-1953), "Continuity," The Queen of China and Other Poems (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1919), p. 32:
Long after we have ceased to be
The sun will light in bush and tree
And shine unchanged; the high turf hill
Shall stand up in beauty still;
And all the valleys that we knew
Put on again the summer's hue,
When we are gone, when we are gone,
And are what green things feed upon.
