I will, said the Earth

For Maria


  1. Who will love a little Sparrow?
    Will no one write her eulogy?
    "I will," said the Earth,
    "For all I've created returns unto me,
    From dust were ye made and dust ye shall be."

  2. Come on guys, don't be so freeky! Our bodies are made of dust, stardust in fact, and our souls are solid gold!

  3. Paul Simon's lyric brilliance shines through. Compare the two:

    "For you are dust, and to dust you shall return" (Genesis 3:19)

    "From dust were ye made and dust ye shall be" (P.S.)

    Now that's poetry-- not to mention the music!
