Full Six Feet Deep

Full six feet deep we sleep

The canopy of stars and clouds may weep

Across the centuries we sweep

Our secrets and our lies to keep

Full six feet deep we sleep

 

Full six feet deep we lie

Our wars and all our death decry

Till we may meet here by and by

So still, we simply moan and sigh

Full six feet deep we lie

 

Full six feet death remain

The wind will whisper sweet refrain

As though we’ve something to explain

Bu even on this darkling plain

Full six feet deep remain

 

Full six feet deep we sleep

And dream that in the stars we leap

No valley low, no mountain steep

As though our promises to keep

Still, six feet deep we sleep
