Lawrence Frankpitt Fearby Poems
The Great Unknown
Opinions of the ultimate
Of death th'eternal second state
Are varied as the colours fair
In rainbows and just so much air!
Some say of earth's delights drink deep
For death precedes eternal sleep
Will Omar Khayyam hold the view,
‘Tis immaterial what we do?
Can man who laid in wooden frame
‘Neath stoney slab that bears his name
Reap benefits from worldly gain
Know aught of earthly bliss or pain?
I've heard it said we but adjourn
That deaths prelude a further turn
