Suitable post-script to my fellow inmates

Concern yourself not for me,when I have left this life

nor weep and wail to excess,implored by tears and strife

forgotten by time,will be I and the ground I lay beneath

though with heavy heart, the hand of yours that lays the sympathising wreath.


Praise be to the winds provision,of soft breathed requiem or howling dirge

at one with peace,here I rest,from lifes limited,requisitioning urge.

Caring no longer of this end to my stay,

for I shall possess eternity's key,to be freed,from the prison of mortal way.


No more held,obliged,or,by futility tamed

home among those glittering stars am I to be,that our hopes and wishe's named

'tinkering or tampering' worth a try,but like Colin suggests-keep the original.Slight probs with tinky/tamps is as long has having gone to the trouble of doing so,fresh dis/approvals are forthcoming.

Look forward to possible changes J.J.

crikey Jemima! this is STUNNING! Absolutely beautiful in a sad way.We think you should leave it as it is.One could go on tampering with most poems if it come to that.

We think once it is written just leave it because there is the possibilty that it could lose its quality.

Simply beautiful and I adore this poem. I always say we are all stardust we come from the stars and go back to them. So next time you see a shooting star wish upon one and see what happens xx
