Tomb. n.s. [tombe, tombeau, Fr. tumba, low Lat.] A monument in which the dead are enclosed.
Methinks, I see thee, now thou art below,
As one dead in the bottom of a tomb. Shakespeare.
Time is drawn upon tombs an old man bald, winged, with a sithe and an hour-glass. Peacham on Drawing.
Poor heart! she slumbers in her silent tomb,
Let her possess in peace that narrow room. Dryden.
The secret wound with which I bleed
Shall lie wrapt up, ev'n in my herse,
But on my tomb-stone thou shalt read
My answer to thy dubious verse. Prior.
