“…all that is finished
falls home to the ancient source.

Above the change and loss,
farther and freer,
your singing continues..”—Rilke

Nothing that we are
lasts forever unchanged.

In winter, the earth
gathers its strength for
new growth to come in spring.

Even as our bodies age,
we may find growth of spirit.
We too long for April rainsong and the sun.
