Graveyard Sounds

Extinct and ignored are these downcast shadows 
In rusting temples where solitude dwells,
Yet here nights are lost between dreams and thought
All hushed in soundless tombs

Into this somber blackness shines no light
To inflame the darkened stones;
While they who lay in dirt and clay
Speak not there eternal memory

To ash from ash, unto thus be dust
When years turn through to years,
Till mournful words surpass the truth
Once attained next to graveyard sounds
