Ferryman’s toll

Now are the bright lights in sky
With their big cracking sounds.

And these windows get excited
Reminding of everyone’s death.

No light will be left in the eyes
And only two pennies on them.

(In an ancient Greek practice two coins are placed on the dead man’s eyes for the ferryman’s toll across the river Styx)
