No More Enmity

Moses Ibn Ezra (1055-1135), "I Behold Ancient Graves" (tr. Solomon Solis-Cohen):
I behold graves of ancient time, of days long past,
    Wherein a people sleeps the eternal sleep.
There is no enmity among these folk — no envy;
    No loving of neighbor and no hating;
And my thought, envisioning them, cannot discern
    Master from slave!
