Mortals Like Us


Hidden beneath
billowing snow,
the dead belong
to an exclusive club
only they can know.
Mortals like us
are shut out,
at least for now,
you'd better have
another place to go.
Please come back
on the cusp of spring,
when a softer earth
with a waking heart,
will take you under
its spreading wing.
