This Quiet Dust Was Gentlemen And Ladies

Rating: 5.0
This quiet dust was gentlemen and ladies
And lads and girls;
Was laughter and ability and sighing,
And frocks and curls;

This passive place a summer's nimble mansion,
Where bloom and bees
Fulfilled their oriental circuit,
Then ceased like these.

Fantastic descriptive concept of how we are all ultimately from and to the same source

I think of this poem as a stroll through a cemetery, looking at the gravestones and recognizing that each of them represents a unique individual.

The dust was the gentlemen and ladies, does this mean that the gentlemen and ladies were dead? I think so.
