Cemetery Art – 9/04/12

Oakwood Cemetery, Raleigh NC 

Sit for a Spell- Three

One grand great life throbs through earth’s giant heart,
And mighty waves of single Being roll
From nerve-less germ to man, for we are part
Of every rock and bird and beast and hill,
One with the things that prey on us, and one with what we kill.

                                                                                              — Oscar Wilde, Panthea
