Have A Southern Day
Good morning to you too, SB! Thank you. It makes me feel good to know that someone enjoys my photos. :) I don't know if I've ever said so, but it means a lot that you take the time to read the poems and other writings, too. That alone makes keeping up this blog worthwhile to me. :) Hope you're having a good day today. It looks like the sun's shining brightly this morning. That's always a good thing. Sunshine is good for whatever ails ya'. ♥ (So are hugs!)Although Gene wasn't technically MY uncle, I always thought of him as such. Since I'm not going to be able to go to the graveside service this afternoon, I wanted to pay my respects somehow. Sure hope his family is holding up alright. :(
Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep Do not stand at my grave and weep,I am not there... I do not sleep.I am the thousand winds that blow...I am the diamond glints on snow...I am the sunlight on ripened grain...I am the gentle autumn rain.When you waken in the morning's hush,I am the swift uplifting rushOf gentle birds in circling flight...I am the soft star that shines at night.Do not stand at my grave and cry—I am not there... I did not die...(I don't know who wrote it, but it's always been one of my personal favorites.)
Thank you, Rose. I appreciate you posting that. It is also one of my favorites. (And I think Mary Frye wrote the original verses, though someone else had it copyrighted many years later). It gives a very romantic outlook on death and the passing of loved ones. It's my kinda' poem. Thank you again. :)
