Colour of truth


Give me the last bath
Without soap and water
Put me under the dry soil,
I do not want to drench myself
As I have seen the colour in the tears
Of the clouds on the petals of the flower

Do not lament or send any condolence
Never built over me any grave or epitaph
Forget for ever if possible that my birth is a lie
I have seen the colour of truth, it is not white.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

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.
