    A Poem for the Grieving . . .

    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 on snow.

    I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.

    When you waken in the morning’s hush,

    I am the swift uplifting rush

    Of quiet birds in circled flight.

    I am the stars that shine at night.

    Do not stand at my grave and cry,

    I am not there, I did not die.
