"There is a destiny that makes men brothers: 

None goes his way alone;
All that we send into the lives of others: 

Comes back into our own.

 

~Edwin Markham (1852-1940)

 

 


Poems by Mildred J. Douglass (1908-1988)

Note: written three days after the death of her mother, Fannie Agusta Dustin Munson (1880-1964)

My Mom

Silently she lies beneath the sod

Her call was heard and answered by God

 

"Oh, let me die before the snow falls"

God heard and answered her wistful call.

 

Empty are hearts since she went away

But we would want it no other way

 

Her life was long suffering for years

We prayed that Jesus would end her tears

 

Now she and Dad lie side by side

Together to cross the great divide

 

On that glorious day when Christ appears

And gathers together his children here

 

Then we shall meet together again

And all will should a blessed Amen.

 

--- 9/27/1964 by Mildred J. Douglass
