Ah, but what is, or means, "like the descent of their last end"? What epiphany 
answers this?

A few light taps upon the pane made him turn to the window. It had begun to 
snow again. He watched sleepily the flakes, silver and dark, falling obliquely 
against the lamplight. The time had come for him to set out on his journey 
westward. Yes, the newspapers were right: snow was general all over Ireland. It 
was falling on every part of the dark central plain, on the treeless hills, 
falling softly upon the Bog of Allen and, farther westward, softly falling into 
the dark mutinous Shannon waves. It was falling, too, upon every part of the 
lonely churchyard on the hill where Michael Furey lay buried. It lay thickly 
drifted on the crooked crosses and headstones, on the spears of the little 
gate, on the barren thorns. His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow 
falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of 
their last end, upon all the living and the dead.
