The fine threads of life

The fine threads of life

In the rose garden
           the blooms have faded :
the very sun that fed their growth
           has led them to their last days
fresh flowers will come again
           in late July or early August
it’s just a matter of time
           and of that universal process

how all things rise
           and all things fall
how life is followed by death
           and death by life
how we too rise up from birth
           and grow tall in love and beauty
before death cuts us down
           country style

These are the days
           never forget
