Too many things have died around this place
Too many things are not buried and proud
in terrible death. Silence can only shroud
the living. Here she has lifted the face
of flesh. Here is life dead without a grace
and smirking in the skeleton of a bird.
Too many things around this place have heard
death eat and cough and light his pipe and pace.
Too many things have lived in terrible pride
Let us go out and shut and lock the room
The skeleton of a bird has clutched the mind
the skeleton of a life has wrenched the side.

We are the mysteries of the naked tomb
we are too many things, the terrible blind.
