  2. I agree, a touching piece of work when read, but doesn't pan as a song
  3. Will use it this year as part of the festival of remembrance....

    I would have thought that a journalist could at least spell remembrance correctly. Standards are clearly slipping.
  5. I will offer the following in my defence:

    The late hour of the post.

    The high dose of medication currently being taken ( for what my wife describes as 'Man flu', but she calls a cold).

    Bad habits as a result of the use (or lack of) spellcheck ....

    Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there I do not sleep
    I am a thousand winds that blow
    I am the diamond glint on snow
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there - I did not die.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain
    I am the gentle autumn rain
    When you awake in the morning's hush
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight
    I am the soft stars that shine at night
    Do not stand at my grave and cry
    I am not there - I did not die.

    i read this at my fathers funeral, he was an old sailor, a very old sailor, and we use it every year, as a family to honour him, by the clyde. lol the pride of the clyde
