Light Beckons Her


LIGHT BECKONS HER

Light beckons her

She that travailed much

Light beckons her

She that tasted life’s test in earnest

Light beckons her

She that suffered much in her years

Light beckons her

She that passed her test in flying colours

Light beckons her

She that claims all my heart’s honours

Light beckons her

She that travailed much now has repose

Light beckons her

See how the angels cuddle her in warm embrace

Light beckons her

Now rest is yours! Rest Caroline! Rest Adelanke!

For Light beckons you!

No noise with light but silence, sweet silence.

Therefore enjoy your rest, Adelanke

As Light beckons you!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
