DEATH comes once, let it be easy.
Ring one bell for me once, let it go at that.
Or ring no bell at all, better yet.
Sing one song if I die.
Sing John Brown’s Body or Shout All Over God’s Heaven.
Or sing nothing at all, better yet.
Death comes once, let it be easy.
When Carl DID die – his family held a small service, where they sang both these songs and rang the bell once. simple tribute to a great man.
This is a great poem and really shows emotion!
