Poetry

mine copy

Well I did it- I bought a typewriter on eBay the Olivetti Lettera 32 and it will be shipped next week as stupid Paypal won’t convert my US funds into AU dollars. So frustrating!

One of the reasons I got a typewriter is because I want to start writing poetry again. Here is one of my favourite poems by Mary Elizabeth Frye. Other writers I love are Edgar Allen Poe and Alfred Lord Tennyson

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Once I start writing again I will share some of poems on here. I wrote some really good ones in the past, some of which I have lost which is such a shame.
