(10 December 1830 – 15 May 1886 / Amherst / Massachusetts)

Ample Make This Bed.

Ample make this bed.
Make this bed with awe;
In it wait till judgment break
Excellent and fair.

Be its mattress straight,
Be its pillow round;
Let no sunrise' yellow noise
Interrupt this ground.

This is about death. The bed is an elaborate or ornate coffin.
