Death be proud

The lady is veiled, pure and dead
From a piece of Italian mountain,

Dead as the marble of her maker
Who lost marbles to proud death.

The museum man of last century
Went cold as keeper of old things .

All old things go cold in a marble,
Making death rather extra proud.

(Veiled Rebecca is a beautiful marble statue ,made by an Italian sculptor Benzoni, based upon her Old Testament character . The statue is found in the Salar Jung Museum in Hyderabad )
