In Parting


Good bye, again, good bye.

It's hard, hard not to cry

But try to remember

That following September

Winter frosts, and spring bursts forth,

And a whole new world begins.

Then I'll say again, Hello.

Hello again, my friend.



Augustus / Redlands / August 1987

        Thanks "A" Life is a continuous cycle of birth ~ life ~ death and in my extended Family it seems as ONE dies at least TWO are born so we are multiplying ! The global population could reach 10 billion by 2050 I'll be 67 so I could be in GLORY ! In my experience(in an extended Family) BIRTH relieves the pain of death. Your excellent photo reminds us the animals feel the remorse of death (of a Family Member} as well ! Thanks for sharing ~ BRIAN

          Saw a video of elephants caressing the weathered bones of their dead herd members. Thanks for the note.
