My Casket

The casket was filled with rust
old from centuries accumulated
silver, gold, diamonds, copper, iron

The riches of men, giants, elves
long dead, past prime, legends dust
and caskets, made for death

Golden leaves piled upon you now
as summer dies, and autumn
encroaches in silent and death

Dreams long past forgotten
covered in mist, in frayed ribbon
cracked broken swords on shields

Test me, offer me life's question
search my spirit, my soul mind
Absolution be my bed, my grave.
