The funeral is done


The funeral is done
the coffin laid
the great Ideas thrive
the night will come
and cast a lid on all the mourning made:
another Dawn will be
another day
and then so many other days:
so many other suns will rise
so many tears in the woes and
joys of humans, of
us humanity:
for
the funeral is done
the coffin laid
the great Ideas thrive

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
