The Conclusion

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
When we have wander'd all our ways,
Shuts up the story of our days;
But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
My God shall raise me up, I trust.

by Sir Walter Raleigh

........this is a great poem of time.....time gives and time takes away leaving us with nothing...but earth and dust.....love the conclusion of this poem...
Indeed a masterpiece... the brutality of death is nicely demystified by the hope of life. Great poem.
This wonderful beautiful poem is about the fate of living..and in second part biblical reference or holy reference - Faith on the day of judgement- Resurrection the dooms day the final conclusion nice one
In God we trust. And so shall we be from the beginning until the end. Thank you dear Poet!
