Consider the following lines from the first stanzas of the poem:

As virtuous men pass mildly away,
And whisper to their souls to go,
Whilst some of their sad friends do say,
"The breath goes now," and some say, "No,"

So let us melt, and make no noise

What is the narrator trying to communicate here when he says "So let us melt"?
