The Last Chapter
Poetry at Death's Door
"When I am gone
and the house desolate,
yet do not thou, O plum tree by the eaves,
the spring forget."
Extract from: "Dame Felicitas Corrigan"
by Helen Waddell (1889-1965), Irish poet and translator
Because I could not stop for Death -
He kindly stopped for me -
The Carriage held but just Ourselves -
Extract from: 'Chariot'
by Emily Dickinson (1830-1886), American Poet
There is a time for everything
a season for every activity under the heaven:
a time for birth and a time to die...
The Bible, Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
is very likely the single best invention of life.
Death is life's change agent.
Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
