Mummy's resting place


Mummy's resting place

Under the heavy ground
Your bones lay without a sound
Bones locked in a box
Is this heaven's take off dock?

A flicker of a lit candle on your grave
To reassure myself you once lived
To honour your life, now a memory
Rain fell and even that was put out
More proof all life ends without a doubt

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
