I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on the snow I am the sun of ripened grain> I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the mornings hush I am the swift uplifting rush of the quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shineat night. Do not stand on my greave and cry I am not there. I did not die.
