There's a Kind of Hush

They raised the tents.
They raised the umbrellas.

They gave their salute.

They played taps.

They buried their loved one.
The birds were quiet.
The gentle rain continued.
Softly we closed the door.

So profound. Lovely photos. Sacred.

Love, sweet dreams!
Lo, the beams of the light
Fairy moon kissed the streams,
Love, Goodnight!
Ah so soon!
Peaceful dreams!

Dear Mary,
Thank you. I watch many funerals and the double tents were rather extrordinary.

Dear Sprite,
Thank you! That is divine.

Dear Jayne,
Yes, and may they rest in peace.
