  1. Because I could not stop for Death BECAUSE I could not stop for Death– He kindly stopped for me– The Carriage held but just Ourselves– And Immortality. We slowly drove–He knew no haste And I had put away My labour and my leisure too, For His Civility– We passed the School, where Children strove At Recess–in the Ring– We passed the Fields of Gazing Grain– We passed the Setting Sun– Or rather–He passed Us– The Dews drew quivering and chill– For only Gossamer, my Gown– My Tippet–only Tulle– We paused before a House that seemed A Swelling of the Ground– The Roof was scarcely visible– The Cornice–in the Ground– Since then–’tis Centuries–and yet Feels shorter than the Day I first surmised the Horses Heads Were toward Eternity– Emily Dickinson

  2. “Stay Gold” “Seize upon that moment long ago One breath away and there you will be So young and carefree Again you will see That place in time…so gold Steal away into that way back when You thought that all would last forever But like the weather Nothing can ever…and be in time Stay gold But can it be When we can see So vividly A memory And yes you say So must the day Too, fade away And leave a ray of sun So gold Life is but a twinkling of an eye Yet filled with sorrow and compassion though not imagined All things that happen Will age too old Though gold”

  3. I just wanted to say that I came across this while googling something. The poems were very nice and thank you guys very much for thinking of him and posting them. Uncle David I just wanted to say that I love and miss you very much!! I was just telling my children how we used to play “got ya last” all the time and you would tag me and run across the street lol 🙂
