Into this world

Let us die gracefully into this world
like a leaf pressed in stone
let us go quietly breathing our last breath
let  the sun continue to revolve in its great golden dance
let us leave it be as it is
and not hold on 
not even to the moon
tipped as it will be tonight 
and beckoning wildly in the sea
