"Dingdong! The castle bell!
Farewell, my mother!
Bury me in the old churchyard
Beside my eldest brother.
My coffin shall be black,
Six little angels at my back,
Two to sing and two to pray
And two to carry my soul away."

How beautiful and sad that was! How beautiful the words were where they said "Bury me in the old churchyard"! A tremor passed over his body. how sad and how beautiful! He wanted to cry quietly but not for himself: for the words, so beautiful and sad, like music. The bell! The bell! Farewell! O farewell!
