a poem by Deepthi

O ardent death,
The great leveller of mankind,
Thou art the supreme,
Thou art the friend of life.
Thou art the fear personified,
Thou art the angel of heaven and hell,
Thou art the mentor of mankind,
Thou art giveth a green mossy bed,
Ardent angel of eternal sleep,
Throw your lulling poppy seed around me,
And embalm my aching head with thine presence divine,
Give me my sleep before my verses and thoughts ceases to be.
