This is the body that was her beauty
Is the body of us all
Her beauty is the body of us all
Her body is the beauty of us all
We are with her & also with you
Washing in water fresh as the dew
Wash with her in waters fresh as dew
The candle’s pall is an eternal glow
The lustrous fired glooms of fall
Will follow the tired afternoon
Come & kiss the water, kiss the water.
The marble is dim but roomy,
Animate the tomb’s dream.
