Bemused by love

How can love lead into lonely grief?

Why is human life intense but brief ?

Is grieving and the loss that brought it on

The way which human beings come undone ?

Will this teach us that we are of dust?

That we go down to earth as creatures must?

Icarus flew too high when filled with pride.

We must not take such images as slguides.

The worms that we encounter in the grave

Remind us all of Dover’s lonely waves

We are defined by dissolution death

We need no last reminders of our breath
