For NTodd and his family.

If Death is Kind

Perhaps if death is kind, and there can be returning,
We will come back to earth some fragrant night,
And take these lanes to find the sea, and bending
Breathe the same honeysuckle, low and white.

We will come down at night to these resounding beaches
And the long gentle thunder of the sea,
Here for a single hour in the wide starlight
We shall be happy, for the dead are free.

~Sara Teasdale


My deepest, deepest sympathies on the passing of the inestimable NTodd's Pa's Wife. I grieve with you for the loss you must endure.

Please visit Dohiyi Mir and leave your condolences there, as well.
