The Sweetened Earth

How sweet is the earth where you rest
do the wild poppies in their delicacy
flavour your sleep with eternal dreams,
the gentle lyrics of oblivion’s reverie.

How soft are these immortal ashes
bequested by your funeral pyre
do they make for tender sheets
to hold forever your writ’ desires
