Ere now there have been many men & many women
The four quarters of the world have been adorned by all of them
Soon will come the time when thy body will be dust under-ground
The dust of thy body will become that of a thousand roads.


P 203

Before thee many a man and woman there hath been,
By whom the whole wide world made bright and fair hath been:
Soon shall thy body, too, turn dust, for that, indeed,
Embodied thousandfold thy dust whilere hath been.

Th 685

Many a one hath lived ere thee and me,
That earth's four quarters hath made fair to see.
Thy body soon turns dust, for thousand times
Embodied elsewhere hath been dust of thee!
