Angels shall sing thee to rest

Angels shall sing thee to rest

This poem came to me while i was affixing a bronze angel to a Baroque trumpet in the old Crocker Early MusicWorkshop when it was in Windsor NY
it is dedicated to the memory  of Deborah Linton who died tragically that year. and to Derwood Crocker her friend.




Angels shall sing thee to rest my love
and Angels shall sing thee to rest
Heart beating wildly too soon shall be still
Angels shall sing thee to rest my love
and Angels shall sing thee to rest
and those I have loved throughout my life
recall that I love'd thee best

this was awesome, and it made me want to cry, its so beautiful and sad at the same time. thank you for sharing this one.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
