Tell Me Of The Earth (c) by L.B. Willner
A Eulogy In The Form Of A Poem Spoken In The Voice Of The Deceased
Please tell me what you hear, And tell me what you see.
For I am now far away, So look and hear for me.
Tell me of the children, Do they still play by the school?
And are they just as mischievous, Being both the hero and the fool?
And what now of the sunshine, Does it still bathe the Earth in warmth?
Does its light a million colors still scatter, Taking the Artist's spirit by Storm?
What then of nature, Can you tell me what you see?
Is it all still as beautiful, As when you were with me?
Is the sunrise just as spectacular, and the sunset just as colorful?
As when we sat together, in some long forgotten morn?
Then Where I am I am not lonely, If these wondrous visions you provide
Of the Earth and of its splendors, As I lie here in this Gardenside!
A LOVELY LADY (c) by L.B. Willner
A Eulogy Poem or Elegy
Gently ebbed the life away,
Of this most lively spirit.
Here she shined just yesterday,
Before leaving to join the ages.
She was a flower herself,
And a flower child too.
That would brighten at the least urging,
But deep waters ran there too, all merging.
It is quiet in her parlor now,
All her special things have been put away.
No time left with them for this lady
Only remembrances of her earthly days.
Goodbye, adieu, you with the shining eyes
Fare thee well, you said it would be okay.
Maybe so in reason, but in quiet reverie
Never, never again the same.
A Eulogy In The Form Of A Poem
Her quiet strength a virtue still
Was Steadfast in a changing world.
But always there for kit and kin
Her Noble presence was deeply felt.
And yet a private person still
Who shied away from the spotlight's glare.
Yet there remained, in close support
for those who would but dare.
She was for them in Victory
But also in their quiet pain.
To soothe the soul of those
Who often simply tried in vain.
A gifted spirit yet not too good
But certainly also not too plain.
To share herself with friends and kin
And give her love without restraint.
