32: Das Friedhofstor (Der Kirchhof)

Das Friedhoftstor

Decay and transformation;
the world is based on these
as much as on creation
and therefore life must cease
and be restored in cycles
that we cannot explain
wherefore we make these stones;
so something does remain.

The gate is hanging,
walls are weathered;
nature takes its toll
as time goes by.
Yet memories are told
on every stone behind the wall,
on every one of the inscriptions –
that is all there is left
when the rest has transitioned.
