Poetic Obituaries: [Wislawa Szymborska] died in her sleep--

an end that she had anticipated in a poem published 54 years earlier: "Death? It comes in your sleep,/exactly as it should.//When it comes, you'll be dreaming/that you don't need to breathe . . . you'd feel more terror at the sound/of petals falling to the ground."

from The Telegraph: Wislawa Szymborska
