I’ve admired this firebox conversion dozens and dozens of times – can’t believe I’m just noticing the back:

“I see a sad procession,
And I hear the sound of coming full-key’d bugles,
All the channels of the city streets they’re flooding,
As with voices and with tears.”

From Dirge for Two Veterans by Walt Whitman.
