Virginia Woolf, They sang from trees in the meadow of life

From Mrs. Dalloway 

        HE WAITED. He listened. A sparrow perched on the railing opposite chirped Septimus, Septimus, four or five times over and went on, drawing its notes out, to sing freshly and piercingly in Greek words how there is no crime and, joined by another sparrow, they sang in voices prolonged and piercing in Greek words, from trees in the meadow of life beyond a river where the dead walk, how there is no death.

 

   Cf.  Woolf : I'd give ten years of my life to know Greek  &  Aeschylus translated brings despair   Papacy
