There are many lovely layers here..
I'm not so clear about your third line..

'A seed is laid to early rest'

Are you refering to sowing in spring? Because of the way the sentence ends, I thought perhaps I was misinterpreting that..

Would love to know ..

Aurora, I just read the inspiration behind that line on the magnapoets site, so I'm clearer now! Thanks..

Sangeet, I was thinking of the verse, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. from John 122:24. I was likening the burying of a body to sowing in springtime, and hoping that this early death would somehow paradoxically spring up with some life, for both the deceased and those of us who remain.

Oh, this feels so sad, Aurora...
but it does have hope -- that the promised spring will arrive.
Beautiful work!
