Death is a Door by Nancy Byrd Turner

Death is only an old door
Set in a garden wall;
On gentle hinges, it gives, at dusk
When the thrushes call.

Along the lintel are green leaves
Beyond the light lies still;
Very willing and weary feet
Go over that sill.

There is nothing to trouble any heart;
Nothing to hurt at all.
Death is only a quiet door
in an old wall.
