On dying

“If I should go before the rest of you

Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,

Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice

But be the usual selves I have Known.

Weep if you must,

Parting is hell,

But life goes on

So Sing as Well.”

-Joyce Grenfell in Sydney Morning Herald 20/12/1980

[Joyce Grenfell was a favourite poet of my mother’s]
