The dead in soft sweeps
Name upon name in the green
thousands thousands thousands

All the unknown dead
Are waiting in the quiet
for God to name them

Stone One forty three
Does your name still matter now?
The goddess knows you

Unknown, unknowing
the nameless lost ones lie in rings
who will mourn them now
