Elysium

The Elysian Fields were a place in Greek mythology where the souls of heroes and righteous people went to rest. In this land of eternal peace and happiness, the souls were absolved from all suffering. They had infinite time to stroll through the pale meadows, surrounded by music, poplars and asphodels. The last, a type of flower, came to symbolize death, grief, sadness, melancholy, sentimentality — and eternity.

In the words of English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson:

Others in Elysian valleys dwell, 
Resting weary limbs at last on beds of asphodel
