DEATH: Full Stop Or Ellipsis?











Of all that man has found on earth,
In all his search through hills and dales,
While still he has the borrowed breath,
One thing remains behind the veils.

Is death a call to judgement's throne;
A time to take the crown or flame,
When for their deeds all souls atone?
Or doth the grave hold soul and frame?

Is death the end for king and knave;
The one that's rich and he that's poor?
Or there's a place beyond the grave?
Surely, of that, no one is sure.

So still, man asks when breaths doth cease:
Full stop it is or ellipsis?
