Damp Earth

Damp Earth short poem

Uploaded by Richard Cronin


A life well lived, still leads us back
Straight to old death’s door

I thought he was a stranger once
But, now I’m not so sure

He looks so familiar now
Have I seen his face before

I pounded on the portal, then
With nothing left to do

So say your prayers and pack your bags
For death will come to you

The earth is damp
When we dig the graves

For the Kings of the castles
And the lowest of knaves

Mama Earth

Mama Earth prose poem

Isn’t this a wonderful planet we call Earth, with conflicting ways of how she was given birth? In The Holy Bible it’s by God’s Hands how everything thing was formed, even man. But science well, they have a different story,
