To Life

Life is to the living

As death befits the dead.

Each to each, the latter,

Shall be our daily dread.


We try to cheat our doom

We look the other way.

As earth shall shroud

Both sinner and saint

In equal disarray.


Life is to the living

As death befits the dead.

We see their stone-hedge welcome

For stretches of lying sleep,

Miles long and valleys deep.


We pray again our souls to keep.

The dead, they don the silence

As into the earth their shadows sweep.

The secret of their demise

The living shall with mercy keep.
