Stabat Mater dolorosa
Juxta crucem lacrymosa,
Dum pendebat Filius.
Cujus animam gementem,
Contristatam et dolentem,
The Last Words of Moses
When you've come this far,
and it's taken this long,
and more times
than you'll ever want to remember
you were more than certain
you would never make it,
the one you were listening to
has never once let you down,
and you finally arrive,
and oh! - it is this!
not only flowing with milk and honey
as you were promised,
but also offering a lush soft breast
on which to lay your weariness
and warring madness,
there is only one thing you can do.
Learn to touch without bruising
for once in your life.
There stood the Mother grieving,
Beside the cross weeping,
While on it hung her Son.
Whose saddened soul,
Sighing and suffering,
A sword pierced through.
Come Away, Death
Come away, come away, death,
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath;
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My shroud of white, stuck all with yew,
O prepare it!
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it.
Not a flower, not a flower sweet,
On my black coffin let there be strown;
Not a friend, not a friend greet
My poor corpse, when my bones shall be
A thousand sighs to save,
Lay me, O where
Sad true lover never find my grave,
To weep there!
Here’s what’s next.
