Sonnet to Sister Earth

If you, within your veil of clouds like grey
That shroud your lovely form in gauzy breath,
Still think on me in all your bleak array;
If you remember me, though I through Death
Have entered into mysteries unknown--
Will you, oh bittersweet and wounded Earth
Bring forth the seeds of legacy I've sown
To grow and thrive, a new uncertain birth
Of my own thought in those I leave below,
My sister Earth, my fellow fallen one?
For I return to you--my flesh shall know
Your womb's strong darkness when my sands have run.
But I myself, my own immortal soul
Shall exit time and space and be made whole.
