Blame the Dead


Even though they are dead
Don't forget their breath
Don't forget what they left

Even though they are late
Don't forget their debt
Don't forget what they said

Blame the dead
For what we can not pay
Blame the dead
For what we can not replay

poet Robert Browning

After

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
