Lost Yeats I think.

"In tombs of gold and lapis lazuli
Bodies of holy men and women exude
Miraculous oil, odour of violet.
But under heavy loads of trampled clay
Lie bodies of the vampires full of blood:
Their shrouds are bloody and their lips are wet."

Supposedly "Oil and Blood" by W.B. Yeats, but it is not listed on sites for him. Any help?

I didn't see it on that link, but Google gives a gaggle:
