WINTER BURIAL, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Earth, will you be kind to her
Last Line: Next spring?
Subject(s): Death; Funerals; Winter; Dead, The; Burials

Earth, will you be kind to her?
I give her back . . .

Will your clumsy ricks and clay
Break her silk and pearl and ivory
To trash? . . .

. . . or shall I see a little creeping flush
of first flowers along that slope
next Spring?
