Wormwood

Solomon speaks:

When I consider

life under the sun . . .

As one thing dies

so dies the other.

All that have breath are spirit,

all that is organic decays;

      night befalls them all.

 

How fortunate for those long dead –

more blessed are they than the living.

    But better than both is one

    who has never seen the sun.
