Day 127 – Clover and Irish Funeral Prayer

john clover 9-15

Do not stand at my grave and weep,

I am not there…

I do not sleep.

 

I am the thousands 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 rush

Of 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.

 

Irish Prayer
