In The Image Of Dust To Dust, Kipling tribute poem

In The Image Of Dust To Dust,
 Kipling tribute poem


In the image of dust to dust
    rests the dark mankind fears
      yet in its horrors, face we must
  loss, decay- buckets of our tears

as crestfallen as such may be
   in life-  love may joy bring
     rich fruits of its majestic seas
  sweet music lovers sing

dare we such dear treasures deny
   because of morbid fate
     are we not brave to ask the why
  before it is too late

although time often our sight blinds
   does not heart truly see
      such dark-thinking serves to remind
   rests a soul within you and me

therein shall we contemplate more
   meaning of dust to dust
      we that so seek paradise shores
   have thus mislaid our trust

pity- weakness of flesh and blood
   how selfishly we think
     whilst we often bath in the mud
  'til of its stench we stink

in the image of dust to dust
    rests the dark mankind fears
      yet in its horrors, face we must
  loss, decay- buckets of our tears.

Rhyme, 
( A Look Into The Soul And Humanity's Follies, Fallacies And Blindness)
Kipling tribute poem for blog.

Note:
Sorry, that this was not originally included in the Kipling blog
as it was first posted. And that because of my having been ill-
it has taken me so long to rewrite four times - then edit, 
re-edit-and finish it. As of now, I have abandoned the other
third Kipling tribute poem entirely.  As this took so much out
of me just to finish this one.  

Note: 
I already had another tribute blog started. But seems that too
 will be much delayed. As my health issues at the moment 
are so greatly interfering with my writings. As such is life, I
must endeavor to cut back a bit more and hope to re-energize
my writing-soul. God bless…
