    This is my playes last scene, here heavens appoint
    My pilgrimages last mile; and my race
    Idly, yet quickly runne, hath this last pace,
    My spans last inch, my minutes last point,
    And gluttonous death, will instantly unjoynt
    My body, and soule, and I shall sleepe a space,
    John Donne (1572–1631)
