A Good Spot To Die


This is a good spot to die,
safe in my baby's arms,
this is a good spot to live
in my Southland's heart.

This is a good spot to cry,
against your gentle chest,
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot to rest.

This is a good spot to die,
under this willow tree,
this is a good spot to live,
right by my river bank.

This is a good spot to cry,
in the 'raspberry rain, '
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot to fade away.

This is a good spot to die,
in a gentle song,
this is a good spot to live,
right where I belong.

This is a good spot to cry,
in the 'Strawberry Lake, '
this is a good spot to smile,
a good spot for a grave.

This is a good spot for a home,
a good spot for my life,
this is a good spot in your arms,
a good spot to die.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
