On the carpet of earth I see sleepers
And beneath the earth I see (people) concealed
As often as I examine the desert of non-existence
I see those who have not come & those who have gone


F4 23

And we, that now make merry in the Room
They left, and Summer dresses in new bloom,
Ourselves must we beneath the Couch of Earth
Descend--ourselves to make a Couch---for whom?

Nic 274

Que de gens plongés dans Ie sommeil  je vois sur la surface de cette terre! Que de gens j'aperçois déjà enfouis dans son sein! Quand je jette les yeux sur Ie désert du néant, que de gens j'y vois qui ne sont pas encore venus! que de gens qui sont déjà partis!

P 596

On the carpet of earth, lo! sleepers galore we see
And under the face thereof hidden yet more we see:
On the desert of non-existence wherever we look,
The Not-yet-come and the Gone-before we see.

Th 360

Upon earth's carpet sleepers I espy,
And others hidden underneath descry,
And those gone or not come I see where'er
I view the desert of Nonentity.

Wh 317

On earth's green carpet many sleepers lie,
And hid beneath it others I descry;
And others, not yet come, or passed away,
People the desert of Non entity!
