Requiem

Lean in gentle rest and send your thoughts aloft

Like wand’ring wind or passing sprite-

On through the mossy woods wending swift and soft.

 

These woods we walked in summer greenlight soft;

You would watch us play here in the evening light

Then lean in weary rest and send your thoughts aloft

 

Near the crackling fire sending smoke aloft

Smoke that rattled on against the night

On through the mossy woods wending swift and soft

 

Stories reading- your voice sweet and soft

Urging us with gentleness of story sight:

“Lean in tender rest and send your dreams aloft”

 

Yet we must part for God has called your soul aloft

No more to wander in painful corporeal night

On through the mossy woods wending swift and soft

 

And we these mem’ries will think of oft’

And bid you travel to Heavens light-

Lean in tender rest and send your soul aloft

On through the mossy woods wending swift and soft
