Rough Winds, Be Kind ~

Rough winds, blow lightly _
over this mound 
here lies our dearest _
in hallowed ground.

Springs rains, fall gently _
gently to bless
snows, fall as softly _
as a caress.

Let her be covered_
lightly as foam 
warmly as love _
for love is her home!

(for my dear friend, that recently passed on.

  5. Very sweet poem, Margie. Sorry to hear of your friend's passing. I enjoy visiting the old cemeteries, and am looking forward to hopefully seeing my great-great-great granduncle's grave at the Civil War veteran's cemetery in St. Louis this summer.
