Today’s 365 “Dust to dust”

Is there a Death? Pale forms of men
To formless clay resolve again;
Sarcophagus of graven stone,
Nor solitary grave, unknown,
Mausoleum, or funeral urn,
No answer to our cries return;
Nor silent lips disclose their trust;
“Ashes to ashes, dust to dust!”

From the poem “Ashes To Ashes, Dust To Dust” by Alfred Castner King
