Room 168

October 8, 2016

finally you are: born
from weak womb, all misery
like flower to short life doomed
far from good and from rest;
may the day of your birth die,
and the churn’d earth where you fell,
may that black ground die, too.
Will you ever consider
how much a very day is worth?
certainly not: know, now,
that death and your days are rings
of the same chain; remember,
the only wise man is
the one who lives all hours
like the one where the bell tolls –
this, is what the rumble said.
