Homer Lee Richmond  b 1933  d 1972

 Eulogy for a Veteran

   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 mornings 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.
