DON'T STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP

DON'T STAND AT MY GRAVE AND WEEP!!!


Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there; I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints at sky, I am the sun on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush

I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight. 

I am the soft stars that shine at night. 

Do not stand at my grave and cry, 

I am not there; I did not die.

I have only gone to my rest in peace...

MOTHERS EARTH


This is a wonderful world, and it's true.

It's for us, the trees, and animals, too.


Mother Earth provides us with what we need,

But she can't fulfill humans' constant greed.


Her resources are limited, and she is running out.

Listen to her warnings, cries, and ongoing shouts.


We have polluted her land, water, and air.

This shows Mother Earth how little we care.


We have ignored her for a long enough time.

How we treat her is nothing less than a crime.


May we learn from the mistakes as fast as we can,

Because can't you see destruction has already begun?

THE BROKEN APPOINTMENT



You did not come, 

And marching Time drew on, and wore me numb,— 

Yet less for loss of your dear presence there 

Than that I thus found lacking in your make 

That high compassion which can overbear 

Reluctance for pure loving kindness’ sake 

Grieved I, when, as the hope-hour stroked its sum, 

You did not come. 


You love not me, 

And love alone can lend you loyalty; 

–I know and knew it. But, unto the store 

Of human deeds divine in all but name, 

Was it not worth a little hour or more 

To add yet this: Once you, a woman, came 

To soothe a time-torn man; even though it be 

You love not me?
