Joy Is Not A Treasure You Can lose

Joy is not a treasure you can lose.
Unless you will not, you will be consoled.
Linger with me long as you may choose.
In music as in life no joy is cold.
Undo, then, the tight corset of your grief
So that you might enjoy the moment's keening.
Give ear to music, eloquent though brief,
Restoring to the miracle its meaning.
Of all we think and feel and say and do,
So little, really, must be bound by time.
Still palpable, I'm here with all of you,
Musical as ever in this rhyme.
All I was, I am, and yet will be,
No less in love, although in memory.

Make My Death A Canticle For Peace
Make my death a canticle for peace.Evil has no greater friend than anger,Making ready converts to its cause.On me think but of beauty as you pause,Remembering the service of a strangerIn giving life to purchase your release.Armies live according to their art.Love of life at times requires death,Defending what would else find hungry jaws.As you enjoy the gift of every breath,Yet mourn for me with morning in your heart.

Greatness Is Effect Far More Than Cause
Greatness is effect far more than cause.Each hero is the servant of his fate,On whom is laid the sacrificial weightReserved for those who would heed higher laws.Given peace, I would have shunned applause,Electing to remain a farmer, greatWith long-gestating plans for my estate,A much-loved labor lost to much-loathed wars.So was I the father of a nation,Having given over life and love,Instrument of some far greater hand,Not by choice but of necessity.Glory was the means by which to fashionThe myth that would a king's replacement prove:Only I would do, and that demandNarrowed, deepened, scoured, chastened me.
