One Voice Speaking - Poem by Isabelle Cooper

How when you are dead
Will you touch other hearts
Unless now when you can
You lay bare your own?

For they that come after
Are the same as those that be
They too will hunger for perfume

And in the sharpness of spring
Perceive that others before them
Have known all that they know

The years will be as nothing
Though they be countless

One voice speaking
Is stronger than death
