Beneath the earth

old bones crumble

dank is the winter

forever damp.

 

Colder than stone

teeth no longer chatter

sleep is eternal

frozen in time.

 

Snow lay like a blanket

tidying the scars of humanity

until the thaw

then all is revealed.

 

Winter sun

has no strength

It barely penetrates

their frozen terrafirma.

 

Yet below

they slumber

unawares, who cares

they've had their day

Our time is precious.

 

Their time is lost like in a trance

As we are all lead on life's merry dance.
