The dead an aroma sweet

Princetown United Church Graveyard Prince Edward Island

O years and graves! O air and soil! O my dead, an aroma sweet!
from Pensive on Her Dead Gazing by Walt Whitman

Given enough time
The dead an aroma sweet
Of grass and flowers—
Even trees—make of themselves—
Time and enough tears of rain
