Intimations of Mortality

(For Trent Hurry)

Surprised to find within my breast
A heartbeat flutter from of olde
I lay my hand upon his head
And cried the tears that did unfold.

But you were ever gay, I said,
Though nay are not now so.
And my sweet soul has gone and fled
To find thee here and now.

I smiling kissed his hoary lips
And smoothed his wrinkled brow.
Then fast turned up those sullen lids
And loved the smile that death undid.
