Death

“Death i before me today:
Like the recovery of a sick man, like going forth into a garden after sickness”

“Death is before me today:
Like the odor of myrrh, like sitting under a sail in a good wind”

“Death is before me today:
like the course of a stream, like the return of a man from the war-galley to his house”

“Death is before me today:
Like the home that a man longs to see, after years spent as a captive”

— forgotten poet
