Return to Stardust


Should I die today
T'would be no more
Than a return to stardust
A trip through the cosmos
Once more…
A recycling if you will.
As matter and energy
Never truly die nor end
But simply change…
That gives me a certain
Feeling of anticipation
And comfort…and peace
I guess that's my form of religion.
So I will worship at the altar
Of anticipation…
Take succor in the cosmic scheme
So should I die today…
No matter…
For I need some
…Time away…

poet Sara Teasdale

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
