The Triple Shroud
By Mason A. Freeman, Jr.
THIS is the triple shroud,
  Spun of a single thread
On spindles of the whirling worlds
  In thundering halls of dread;
It makes the living shine as flame,        5
  And resurrects the dead.
Life is the shroud of love,
  Woven of dust and breath.
Death is the shroud of life;
  Love is the shroud of death.        10
