PoArtMo 2020: Kindku 4

Posted on the 17 June 2020 by Cendrinemedia @cendrinemedia

Today's Kindku owes its existence to Mary Elizabeth Frye's Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep.

According to Wikipedia, Frye's poem was inspired by "the story of a young Jewish girl, Margaret Schwarzkopf, who had been staying with the Frye household and had been unable to visit her dying mother in Germany because of anti-Semitic unrest. Because people liked her twelve-line, untitled verse, Frye made many copies and circulated them privately. She never published the poem."

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep always leaves me in a peaceful state. To me, the message is: Do not fear death and welcome it as a true continuation of life.

Stand Not as the NightStand not as the night.friend, life is like a meeting oceansor a little bit of as ever,that bids welcome to the birdson their autumn flight.@2020 Cendrine Marrouat
