Is there anything else that i should bring
to that black funeral
for that gold wing

is there anything else that i could say
to the drunken soil
for the worms decay

is there anything else that i can follow
to that broken path
for that deaf dear swallow

is there anything else for the heart to save
to the deep hollow place
for the deep hollow race

cold and pudrid
rain pour slow
cheerful crocking crow

where else is their to go?
