Trying to find the words to what may have been Robert Louis Stevenson's epitaph. I think it starts with "Under the bright and starry sky...."

Thanks for any help! :)

Requiem

Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
~Robert Louis Stephenson, epitaph, written by him,
placed on his grave.
