Good Friday Blues & Lamentations. Jazz, Silence & Poetry

"Bear in mind
That death is a drum
Beating forever
Till the last worms come
To answer its call,
Till the last stars fall,
Until the last atom,
Is no atom at all,
Until time is lost
And there is no air
And space itself
Is nothing nowhere,
Death is a drum,
A signal drum,
calling life
To come!

(Langston Hughes, 1902-1967)

  1. Apesar dos "zero comments" sei que o avô gostou muito e já me tinha mandado o poema por mail.
    Eu também gostei.
