„But old Death, who can't forget,
Waits his time and watches yet,
Waits and watches by the door.“

—  Robert Graves, Fairies and Fusiliers (1917), Context: Through the window I can see Rooks above the cherry-tree, Sparrows in the violet bed, Bramble-bush and bumble-bee, And old red bracken smoulders still Among boulders on the hill, Far too bright to seem quite dead. But old Death, who can't forget, Waits his time and watches yet, Waits and watches by the door. "The Cottage".
