When the turtle dies the speaker of the poem “wraps [it] in a lettuce leaf” (line 9) and buries it. It receives no significant burial and the speaker forgets about it as she begins to ponder a variety of questions about death. However, as the poem progresses Sarton begins to reference a number of larger things such as “China, Greece, and Rome” (line 22). She says that we remember these places and suggests that in doing so we help them to overcome death.

Lady Macbeth laughed and said, “foolish girl” Macbeth with a look of worry on his face stated “what shall we do with her body?” Lady Macbeth stated, “No worries dear we can put her into a trunk and chuck her into the water, the rocks will take care of the rest.” So for the next half hour they cleaned up the mess in order to make it look like a suicide.
