The Shroud Burns

Time comes when all
shall be reborn

From life to afterlife
there is tradition, ceremony

Before final dressing,
the body is prepared

Washed to cleanse
with gentle hands
some, will be anointed
with aromatic balms

Then, for one last time,
gazed upon in glory

Wrapped in shroud and
concealed from sight,
there will come time to rejoice
when set upon the pyre

Fire of body and spirit
Purified in flaming energy

The soul will be reborn
When the shroud burns
