Go Down, Death Comments

Rating: 3.5

Weep not, weep not,
She is not dead;
She's resting in the bosom of Jesus.
Heart-broken husband--weep no more;


James Weldon Johnson

I have always loved this poem ever since I was a child living in Savannah Ga. I still enjoy reading it

What a beautiful poem. I heard this for the first time yesterday 05/25/2018 at a memorial service for a very special person.
