“My will it is easy to decide I have nothing to divide

My kin don’t need to fuss and moan

But moss does not cling to a rolling stone

My body, ah if I could choose

I would to ashes it reduce

And spread them on a great field

Where flowers bloom and seeds they yield

Some fading of flowers then may

Come alive and live to bloom again.”

-Sophie Barton
