For John

Today the world must leave me alone to mend

For today I mourn the death of a beloved friend

Dishes and dust mites have to wait

For I have heavy grief upon my plate

Oh world, give me this time of quiet solitude

in the rain clouds of my sorrow

And I will be more joyful for it on the morrow
