NO FUNERAL GLOOM
No funeral gloom, my clears, when 1 am gone,
Corftse-gazirigs, tears, black raiment, graveyard grimness.
Think of me as withdrawn into the dimness.
) ours still, you mine.
Remember all the best of our past moments and forget the rest
And so to where I wait come gently on.
HE IS MOT DEAD
I cannot say, and I will not say-
That he is dead. He is just away.
With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand
He has wandered into an unknown land
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs nust be since he lingers there.
And you - oh. you, who the wildest yearn
For an old-time step, and the glad return
Think of him faring on. as dear
In the love of There as the love of Here.
Think of him still as the same. I say
He is not dead - he is just away.
