    My ancestors are laughing now.
    Applauding joyfully,
    glad that I am released
    from the restrictions of being.
    An amazing death. enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    A very interesting poem about death Sally. Your artistic rendition
    of death leaves me spellbound. I am at a lost for words.
    Well done. (Report) Reply

    Interestin read. I liked the poem, overall
    but the title of the poem just feel so wrong.
    I read the poem, and smiled...for you had a successful death. You reached to the destination where you were supposed to be.
    It's the completion of a mission.
    Just using 'humorous death' do not appeal to me. (Report) Reply

    A beautiful poem reflecting what we all will experience one day.
    I've wrote before saying Sally is my favourite poet on this site and with poems like this I bet I'm not on my own either! (Report) Reply

    This is one of the most touching visions of one's dying that I've read. My father used to talk about his ancestors a lot, how considerate they had been in preparing the way for us in life. (It was the closest he could come to images like yours) . (Report) Reply

    Another great poem You seem to be able to convey very deep meaning and tell a story with the minimal of words. Excellent Paul (Report) Reply

    Some face the future
    With happy repose
    Hoping they can nurture
    One last round as life goes.

    And as they slide through 'death's door'
    They smile and say,
    'Wish I could've done more,
    It was a hell of a ride, now I've got hell to pay! ' (Report) Reply

    life makes to objure deeds to words truthfully,
    My past passes me,
    painfully.
    It is a long way,
    the bottom.
    In the mortuary of mind
    lay my ancestors (Report) Reply

    A humorous death? Really? ? Ideal stuff....though not impossible. Some of your admirers may not be laughing....but then, death IS no laughing matter...Unless of course, one CHOOSES the manner of exit....humorous one...remember? ? I wouldn't prefer it any other way! !
    Cheers.

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
