Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep Poem by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Rating: 4.7

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

A true tribute to the spirit of mankind, we are not just one element, mortal life is just one phase of a never ending circle.

I'm sure I studied this poem in 6th grade. That was in 2012-13.
