Linda Mattson What song do you want at your funeral? (348* d) RE: What song do you want at your funeral? 24 Feb 01


Yes, Spaw's choice - Lay Down your Weary Tune, which soothed me when my mother died. Also Kendall's choice, Thanatopsis, perhaps we should find a tune for it. The whole poem is wonderful. Some more lines:

...Earth, that nourished thee, shall claim Thy growth, to be resolved to earth again, And, lost each human trace, surrendering up Thine individual being, shalt though go To mix forever with the elements ...

And then, perhaps an English Music Hall song: Swim Sam Swim Sam Swim Sam OR When father papered the parlor... -Linda
