At Close Of Day

People in the pouring rain

Procession of umbrellas

Come to pay their last respects

Business for flower sellers


A misty damp September day

Birthday of Our Lady

Elizabeth joins the heavenly court

Surely she is ready


Head of State she embodied us

Kept us all together

Presidents and dictators

Don’t know that kind of weather


Death is powerful drama

Stops us where we stand

Remembering our loved ones

Our memory to command


Milestone on the walk of life

Marker on the road

We go on without her

Ahead is our abode


One day it will be our turn

Our days come to their end

But we shall wake in God’s own love

The Lord our faithful friend
