Funeral Poem: The Cost of Life

Death is not too high a price to payfor having lived. Mountains never die,nor do the seas or rocks or endless sky.

Through countless centuries of time, they stayeternal, deathless. Yet they never lived!

If choice there were, I would not hesitateto choose mortality. Whatever Fatedemanded in return for life I'd give,for, never to have seen the fertile plains,nor heard the winds nor felt the warm sun on sandsbeside the salty sea, nor touched the handsof those I love - without these, all the gainsof timelessness would not be worth one dayof living and of loving; come what may.

- Dorothy Monroe
