“The living and the dead
Blend in our dreams together. For in truth
Man's spirit knows not death, but sets aside
The interlinear boundaries of the flesh,
And in its thoughts, which are its proper self,
Holds intercourse with those which are unseen
As if they were still with us."

(The Christian Seasons, p. 112.)
