Only the poet

What’s so hard to understand

Getting old, getting older

 

Why is it hard to understand

 

Only the poet dares speak of death

Yes, maybe the priest, too

The layman chooses not to understand

To see mystery in so ordinary a thing

Tragedy where only the cycle of life should be

 

The poet sees mystery only in living and in life

And dares speak of death as inevitable as reality
