Last Line: In a million shafts of light.
Subject(s): Death; Graves; Rest; Dead, The; Tombs; Tombstones

White sleeping tombs,
Housing those,
Who'll wake no more
To clamour of harsh sound;
Or long green fingers,
Clutching, covering;
Or fetid breaths,
Last remnants of clay.

White sleeping tombs,
Less mortal
Than those housed within,
Rising above blue shadows
To meet the azure arc;
Vibration of many victories,
Proclaiming triumph
In a million shafts of light.
