...
So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged by his dungeon; but, sustain'd and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave,
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.

from THANATOPSIS, by William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878)

I think that the title is quite a good fit for this photograph. I must say it certainly adds depth, though I liked this photo before I got the literary reference. I like the analogous color scheme and the abstract tones in the background.

Love the curled stem of the flower. I find the dried leaf a bit distracting, it's hiding the flower.
