The Dance of Death


Now let us go and do this thing
This thing that death, to us shall bring
The dance of heaven, dance of hell
The dance that mortals dance so well
And when you take your final breath
You’ll know you’ve danced the dance of death
The dance demonic, dance divine
This dance we dance, this dance is mine
I am death’s right hand man
The one who leads death’s immortal band
And when we come to take your breath
You’ll know you’ve danced the dance of death

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
