Rebecca Richmond

  • Death is a clean bold word and has no second meaning. / ... / Do not insult this strong word with a weak evasion / And say, 'He has gone on' - 'He passed away' - 'He sleeps.' / ... / You shall not bear your sorrow's weight upon a crutch of words. / You will stand straight, nor say your lover, friend, your child / Has 'gone' as though he'd wandered off somewhere, / But speak with dignity and say, 'He died.'
