Momenti Mori (At St. Ive Church, South East Cornwall).

Momenti Mori

The world passes by

as here I do lie

in contemplation of my days.

With others like me,

in perpetuity,

watching the Sun rise and set.

And, yet,

lest, one day, we are forgotten,

a record of our names

inside the church does lay.

What does it say?

So little of us,

apart from names and dates…

… the details of a few close relatives.

How were our lives?

What lead us to our fates?
