A Great Simplicity

Don Marquis, "Lines for a Gravestone," lines 19-27, The Almost Perfect State (Garden City: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1927), p. 213:
Speed, I bid you, speed the earth
Onward with a shout of mirth,
Fill your eager eyes with light,
Put my face and memory
Out of mind and out of sight.
Nothing I have caused or done,
But this gravestone, meets the sun:
Friends, a great simplicity
Comes at last to you and me!
