Death’s Sentence

The clop of the horse at the hearse,

The thump of the clod on the lid,

The snap of the book as it closes

Dispense with, dispose of the dead.

 

How quickly the living disperse,

And corpses appallingly gather!

Each rattling breath sighs the sentence

We hope will condemn Death to death.
