More Literary Terms? Requiem

Requiem is defined as: Any chant, hymn, dirge or musical service for the dead.

Whenever I see this term, I think of the movie with Requiem for a Dream. It was an amazing,
physiological-mind thriller. If you havn't seen it, I definitely recommend it as a must-see movie.


It's a bit bone-chilling so watch at your own risk!

For you non-suspenseful movie people out there, here's a nice poem...about death...
By Robert Louis Steveson
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie;
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you 'grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
