Do not stand at my grave and weep

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift uplifting rush

Of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there.

I did not die. Mary Elisabeth Fry, 1932

A Service and Interment will be held in Grand Forks at a later date TBA.
