The Sea Spirit

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

The Sea Spirit

Ah me! I shall not waken soon
From dreams of such divinity!
A spirit singing ‘neath the moon
To me. Wild sea-spray driven of the storm
Is not so wildly white as she,
Who beckoned with a foam-white arm
To me. With eyes dark green, and golden-green
Long locks that rippled drippingly,
Out of the green wave she did lean
To me. And sang; till Earth and Heaven seemed
A far, forgotten memory,
And more than Heaven in her who gleamed
On me. Sleep, sweeter than love’s face or home;
And death’s immutability;
And music of the plangent foam,
For me! Sweep over her! with all thy ships,
With all thy stormy tides, O sea!
The memory of immortal lips
For me!

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
