Tombstone Tales 012 - Sylvia Plath, reading "November Graveyard"

In this poem, the famous poetess Sylvia Plath talks about the cemetery in Heptonstall, where she was buried in 1963.





 

Flower forget-me-nots between the stones
Paving this grave ground. Here's honest rot
To unpick the heart, pare bone
Free of the fictive vein. When one stark skeleton
Bulks real, all saint's tongues fall quiet:
Flies watch no reserrections in the sun.
