Beneath My Tomb!!

Beneath My Tomb!!

Listen, the music of my silent tomb
Beneath the soil, amid the frozen bones
Lay my poisoned, yet cozy bed
And many insects, for my time be passed

Forget me brothers, and my loved ones
Though many had already forgotten
If blessed some time, come here and sit
Or else, snakes or worms, continue your speak

Ah! There lies my wife, let her lie
There she is at rest, so am I
And far lays a man, yet again is cursed
Lies beside his wife, stops never her tongue

Passers remember me as you pass by
As you are now, long once was I
As I am now, so you will be
Though Death is out for free
