Robert Heinlein used this poem as the inspiration of a science fiction story and included the poem in the text.
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 long’d to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
Robert Louis Stevenson. 1850–1894
