Langston Hughes
1902-1967 American

Bear in mind
That death is a drum
Beating forever

Till the last worms come

To answer its call,

Till the last stars fall,

Until the last atom
Is no atom at all,

Until time is lost
And there is no air
And space itself
Is nothing nowhere,
Death is a drum,

A signal drum,
Calling life

To come!
