    1. He who was living is now dead We who were living are now dying

      The circle of life, revolves around death and life but also the in-between and what we don't know about the after life is a big mystery, which takes us back to the unseen, the living dead, or just the dead. It reminds me of the lilacs that bloom from dead land, which could possibly signify that even though we lose people, we also gain new life.

    2. The wind Crosses the brown land

      Wind could be the unseen? And brown land seems to be talking about contaminated/polluted land, wasteland.

    3. “What is that noise?”                           The wind under the door. “What is that noise now? What is the wind doing?”                            Nothing again nothing.                                                         “Do “You know nothing? Do you see nothing? Do you remember “Nothing?”

      This makes me think of that boundary between the dead and living where the wind is unseen, just as a soul or a ghost could be believed to roam the earth. You see nothing but you can hear the wind, you can believe you hear the living dead. Its unnatural.
