Bonnie Underfoot



Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that swiftly blow.
I am the diamond glint
on newly fallen snow.
I am the sunlight
on ripened grain.
I am the soft and gentle autumn rain.

When you wake from sleep in the early morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft, starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there.
I do not sleep.

If you've ever had to introduce a second cat into the home, you'll find this pretty funny:

We are very sad. We didn't see this before. That is a beautiful poem and we hope to see Bonnie at the Rainbow Bridge someday.

It's always sad. The world is just that little bit less beautiful and your life that little bit less full.

Hi, hope you don't mind totally stray strangers dropping in and meowing here... your poem is lovely and from afar we mourn with you the passing of a friend.

I was wondering if there were any cat oriented blogs out there... now I know, the answer is yes!

It would be a great honor if you and any feline friendly friends were to pay a visit to my humble blog abode in France to meow a hello to any of the cats I just posted this past week, and there are more under "Cat Photographs" in the chaotic index...

If you had the follower gadget, I would happily sign up to follow.

Again, your poem is beautiful, it makes me think too of a piece Bob Dylan did similar to "I'm not there", meaning he'd already moved on...
