Untitled Poem To A Lost Love

At the mid hour of night, when stars are weeping,
I fly
To the lone vale we loved, when life shone warm in
Thine eye;
And I think oft, if spirits can steal from the regions
Of air
To revisit past scenes of delight, thou wilt come to
Me there
And tell me our love is remember’d even in the sky!
Then I sing the wild song it once was rapture to hear
When our voices, commingling, breathed like one on
The ear;
And as Echo far off through the vale my sad orison
Rolls,
I think, O my love! ’tis thy voice, from the Kingdom
Of Souls
Faintly answering still the notes that once were so dear.

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.
