surroundings (real detail) as the narrator sits in a churchyard. Soon the narrator starts to comtemplate and talk about death and how everyone dies, even when they are noble. The poem ends with the narrator dying (as an unknown person).
"Now fades the glimm'ring landscape on the sight,
And all the air a solemn stillness holds,
Save where the beetle wheels his droning flight,
And drowsy tinklings lull the distant folds;" Describing of the narrator's surroundings Famous Line "The paths of glory lead but to the grave" King George II King George III George Grenville William Pitt Fun Facts!

When injur'd Thales 2 bids the Town farewell,
Yet still my calmer Thoughts his Choice commend,
I praise the Hermit, but regret the Friend,
Resolved at length, from Vice and London far, 
To breathe in distant Fields a purer Air,
And, fix'd on Cambria's solitary shore,
Give to St. David one true Briton more. The poem describes various problems with London. They are personified into characters such as Malice and Accident. They are villainous beings looking to reek havoc on citizens of London. THE END THANKS FOR LISTENING!
