Эпитафия на могиле художницы:

Here's the rain, that's to wash you
And the meadow roots to hold you tight,
Lie quiet, love.
Here's a robe of earth and a crown of dew.
For the shining face here's the mask of night
(And worms to circle the dancing feet
And a stone for where the wonder was)—
Lie quiet, sweet:
Here's the end of pain
And the flowers to bring you back again.
