I personally don't think that he is dying in this poem. I think that he has
been consumed by the materialistic lifestyle of the city for too long and
he wants to get out. So he is saying goodbye to all the petty ways. He goes
to a place where he is all alone, maybe the hills, mountains, just
somewhere by himself. Where materialistic things cannot touch him. As he
lays there under the stars he can simply laugh at all the people who are
self absorbed and trapped by the city life and he can be all at one with
himself and God when he is all alone and not persuaded by other distracting
