Do you cry
when daffodils die
and roses wilt
on the thorn
Ask you why
we live and die
perchance why you
were born
Or do you pass by
never asking why
from darkling dusk
to morn

and idle tears
both keep us lone
and lorn
Naught makes sense

and we reap
but rue
and scorn

We are forsworn
reft forlorn
as night splinters
into dawn
Naught we know
of the universe
save that it just

just concocted faith
to lean upon

So though roses bloom
O prepare for doom
