    She does not ask for pity and is rather pitiless in her description of death here... death is as much a part of life as birth and she does not give it extra publicity here- she turns instead to God who has kept His promise and clothed her in mercy and light. (Report) Reply

    My friend, who passed this week
    Smiles between the lines
    Of death defined in
    Notes from the Other Side.
    Only Jane Kenyon could
    Capture these images
    Of life and death so fine. (Report) Reply
