The Dead
Revolving in oval loops of solar speedCouched in cauls of clay as in holy robes,Dead men render love and war no heed,Lulled in the ample womb of the full-tilt globe.No spiritual Caesars are these dead;They want no proud paternal kingdom come; And when at last they blunder into bed World-wrecked, they seek only oblivion.Rolled round with goodly loam and cradled deep,These bone shanks will not wake immaculateTo trumpet-toppling dawn of doom struck day:They loll forever in colossal sleep;Nor can God's stern, shocked angels cry them upFrom their fond, final, infamous decay.
