Sweet Death Summary

Sweet Death is a description of how death is sweeter than life. The first verse describes how all the sweetest flowers have to die eventually. The narrator notices flowers wilting and dying in a graveyard and comments on how the blossom returns to the earth from which it came.

The second verse continues the observations by commenting that even young flowers die. The bright, colourful flowers die and return to the earth, nourishing it and making the grass richer. The grass is more worthy than the flowers as it lasts longer.

The final verse compares the life cycle of the flowers to humans. The narrator observes that beautiful, young humans die too. Like flowers the human bodies return to the earth but their souls go to heaven. It is the narrator's belief that we should accept our fate.
