Pages that can be split

HOW TO SPLIT A SHEET OF PAPER
from the "La Petiite Revue" Paris 1892

         Have you ever been reading a booklet or magazine, maybe even a newspaper? Maybe you have spotted a great article in a recipe leaflet and thought "wow I will cut that out and paste it in my cookery book." But what always happens you find that the second half of the article is written on the back of the front bit and many expletives later you give up.
Most people will nod there heads and say "Many times" and you have had to try to find another copy or write the whole thing out, which isn't quite the same.
So what can we do;   According to M. Marissiaux it can be done and it is tested and proved so. Here is his secret from the late 1800's
          Wet both sides of the paper with a weak solution of good glue and stick a piece of calico on each side, taking care to keep the paper absolutely flat.    The calico should be slightly larger than the paper in order to leave a margin which can be made use of afterwards.
          When the glue is quite dry, place on a clean, flat surface, and having secured the under piece of calico, turn back the uppermost piece and gently pull it until it is separated from its fellow ; you will find that the paper has been split in two.
         All that remains to be done is to immerse the two pieces in lukewarm water in order to get them apart from the calico. Next dry them on blotting paper and stick them in your book. And believe it or not this can be done with even the thinnest of papers.

         On checking up on Google I found several references to this same article only in different newspaper articles of the 1890's and they all agree that this is a very satisfactory way to split what looks like a single sheet but in fact is a double sheet, glued together so we can have both sides to read in our newspapers etc.

        I found any water-based glue , watered down to make a thin wash will work fine. Whereas the Calico, which is a piece of unbleached cotton, large enough to cut in two.

Cat having a lazy day
Inner Peace for you

     
If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,

If you can conquer tension without medical help,

If you can relax without liquor,  

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

DODIES DREAM WORLD

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED . . . WHY?


 

Why.....do people order double cheeseburgers, large  fries, and a diet coke.


Why...do banks leave both doors open and then chain  the pens to the counters.

Why......do we leave cars worth thousands of  pounds in the driveway and put our useless junk  in the garage.

Why.....do they have drive-up ATM machines with  Braille lettering.

 Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?


OR HAVE YOU EVER  WONDERED...?

Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin ?

Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins  Lottery'?

Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

Why is it that doctors call what they do  'practice'?

Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

Why isn't there mouse-flavoured cat food?


OR EVEN?

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavour, and dishwater liquid made with real lemons?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?  

You know that indestructible black box that is used on planes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
 
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?  

If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport  the terminal?


Why?  Good question.

THE BRAIN ....
 
SEVERAL OF THESE ARE QUITE INTERESTING, BUT THE
SPINNING GIRL TOWARDS THE BOTTOM IS FASCINATING!!


(
Don't ask me!  I don't know how it's done!!) 
 

Read out loud the text inside the triangle below.


 
  
More than likely you said, 'A bird in the bush,'! And. ........
If this IS what YOU said, then you failed to see
That the word THE is repeated twice!
Sorry, look again. 

   

Next, let's play with some words.
What do you see?


 
In black you can read the word GOOD, in white the word EVIL
(inside each black letter is a white letter).  
 


 

 

You may not see it at first, but the white spaces read the word optical,
the blue landscape reads the word illusion. Look again!
Can you see why this painting is called an optical illusion? 

 
  

What do you see here?



 

This one is quite tricky!
The word TEACH reflects as LEARN. 

 
 
  

Last one.
What do you see?

 

You probably read the word ME in brown, but.......
When you look through ME
 you will see YOU!


Test Your Brain


This is really cool.
The second one is amazing so please read all the way though.
 


                             
 
DYSLECTIC EYE TEST    

Count every ' F ' in the following text:

FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE
SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTI
FIC STUDY COMBINED WITH
THE EXPERIENCE OF YEARS...


(SEE BELOW)

HOW MANY ?
 
 
 
 WRONG, THERE ARE 6 -- no joke.
READ IT AGAIN !
Really, go Back and Try to find the 6 F's before you scroll down.

The reasoning behind is further down.

 
 
The brain cannot process 'OF'.
 
Incredible or what? Go back and look again!!
Anyone who counts all 6 'F's' on the first go is a genius.
 
    

Three is normal, four is quite rare..

Send this to your friends.
It will drive them crazy.!
And keep them occupied
For several minutes..!

 


 
 
Look
 at the spinning woman and if she is turning right your right side of your brain is working. If she is turning left your left side of your brain is working. If she turns both ways for you then you have a 160 or better IQ.

LAST NIGHT, MYSELF AND MY HUSBAND WET OUT TO OUR LOCAL THEATRE, THEATRE CLWYD. WE WENT TO SEE A DANCE! EXPERIANCE CALLED GIG AND WE WERE TOTALLY BLOWN AWAY. THE GROUP ARE CALLED EARTHFALL



THE NEW SPRING TOUR ACROSS WALES AND ENGLAND


After the success of last Autumn's tour, we are taking GIG back across Wales and over the border. So if you missed it before, or just loved the work, check out the tour dates to see which venue we're coming to near you.

GIG: Is a hybrid collection of life-enhancing original songs, synthesized with dances, images and broken down stories of lost souls that echo the victims and heroes of popular music.

The multi award winning Earthfall's 20th anniversary production captures the micro world of a band of musicians and dancers (and dancers as musicians) reflecting the 'Amy Winehouses' and 'Sid and Nancys' of a tragicomic world.


 Performers: Rosalind Brooks, Frank Naughton, Sion Orgon, Beth Powlesland, Lara Ward and Michael Williams.

Designer: Mike Brookes

 A FEW WORDS IN VERSE FROM THE MASTER OF THE
WRITTEN  WORD ALFRED LORD TENNYSON

 A storm was coming, but the winds were still,
And in the wild woods of Broceliande,
Before an oak, so hollow, huge and old
It looked a tower of ivied masonwork,
At Merlin’s feet the wily Vivien lay.



MERLIN AND VIVIENE - "IN REPOSE"

PUT TENNYSON'S WORD'S WITH THE PRINT OF DORÉ,
 YOU HAVE A SUBLIME SIGN OF THEIR PURE GENIUS IN
FRONT OF YOU.



THE THREE OLD LADIES

There was an old lady, all dressed in silk,
Who lived upon lemons and buttermilk;
And, thinking the world was a sour old place,
She carried its acid all over her face.

  Another old lady, all dressed in patches,
Lived upon nothing but lucifer matches;
So the world it made her strangle and cough,
And sure as you rubbed her you set her off.


Another old lady, all sunny and neat,
Who lived upon sugar and everything sweet,
Exclaimed, when she heard of their troubles, "I  never!
For the world is so nice I could live on forever!"

Now, children, take your choice
Of the foods your heart shall eat;
There are sourish thoughts, and brimstone thoughts,
And thoughts all good and sweet.

And whatever the heart feeds on,
Dear children, trust to me,
 Is precisely what this queer old world
Will seem to you to be.


Of course, Mary Mapes Dodge again.

DODIES DREAM WORLD

since we opened Dodies Dream World

        Hello, this is Dodie here of Dodies Dreamworld, as you all know I am one of the alter ego's of Seligor of Seligor's Castle and Diddily of Diddilydeedotsdreamland. Oops don't forget DiddilyDeeDot herself. Who is always somewhere far away. Gosh I do get get confused.

I decided to build Dodie's Dream World when Diddilydeedot grew to big, so I split in in two, making one a trip around the world for myths and legends, all on a more younger theme. This left me room for my own space and what I myself like to talk and listen and in general write about. I am hoping to put a full content of films and books that I enjoy from when I was a teenager to now a mother of five, grandmother of nineteen and great grannie of seven, and I' still only 65 going on 15. I have loved my life my children and my husbands. Hm there have been a few. I loved them all, from teenage first wedding to pensioner fourth wedding two years ago almost.

August 22nd 2009

Today it is my youngest daughters birthday, she is 24. Her baby Jayden is also one today and he was christened this afternoon as well, all on the 22nd August, then to add more icing to the three cakes that were on show, her partner proposed and they are now " financed!".... as she put it. (Don't ask!)

There were 70 guests in a church that conveniently uses the same car park as the Pub, so it was a lovely service and a slap up roast pig on the spit and all that goes with it after. Much drink was consumed and much food eaten, but the Blue Lion in Cwm, which is south of Dyseth put on an amazing spread.

   Being Welsh we couldn't have a lamb, Sacrilege to eat your own lambs on a weekend really :) It was a fabulous day like all our huge family get-together's, we do tend to remarry a lot in our family but we all stay great friends, brilliant you just have to remember who you came with , that's all..... but to get back to this new venture. I hope you enjoy it, it's a great relaxation for me... Boy I need it sometimes I tell you. We fill the Welsh part of Facebook , and now we own that many zoo's and gardens and yovilles between the jon hoard, lol. Just come and enjoy there will be loads of great music, dance and song, films and play-lists, classic and classical. Quizzes, Art and even some Classic Masterpieces.

Just come in and have a look around, you will come back again of that I am certain. You will always be made most welcome. Dodie xxx


I really fancy putting this video right here on the front page and so I can only say I hope you like it.

 DODIE'S DREAM WORLD


WITCH'S CHARM

The owl is abroad, the bat and the toad,
   And so is the cat-a-mountain;
The ant and the mole sit both in a hole,
And the frogs peep out o' the fountain.

The dogs they do bay, and the timbrels play,
The spindle is now a turning;
The moon it is red, and the stars are fled,
But all the sky is a-burning:

The ditch is made, and our nails the spade,
With pictures full, of wax and of wool:
Their livers I stick with needles quick;
There lacks but the blood to make up the flood.
Quickly, dame, then bring your part in!
Spur, spur upon little Martin!

Merrily, merrily, make him sail,
                                A worm in his mouth and a thorn in his tail,
                                                          Fire above, and fire below,
With a whip in your hand to make him go!

Of course this couldn't have been written by any other than the Ben Jonsonvery strange Bed Jonson, and I mean it as a compliment.
For many years I always thought he came from England but his folks family coat of arms was Scottish I believe. He was born in June 1572 and he died in 1637. He was a bit of a rogue, which I presume was the reason for this next paragraph I took from the wikipaedia, my greatest source of fact finding.

...In 1597, a play co-written with Thomas Nashe entitled The Isle of Dogs was suppressed after causing great offence. Arrest warrants for Jonson and Nashe were subsequently issued by Elizabeth's so-called interrogator, Richard Topcliffe.
Jonson was jailed in Marshalsea Prison and famously charged with "Leude and mutynous behaviour", while Nashe managed to escape to Great Yarmouth.
A year later, Jonson was again briefly imprisoned, this time in Newgate Prison, for killing another man, an actor Gabriel Spenser, in a duel on 22 September 1598 in Hogsden Fields, (today part of Hoxton). Tried on a charge of manslaughter, Jonson pleaded guilty but was subsequently released by benefit of clergy, a legal ploy through which he gained leniency by reciting a brief bible verse in Latin, forfeiting his 'goods and chattels' and being branded on his left thumb.
It is said that he was technically the first Poet Laureate, but again this is debatable.


See what I mean, he was a friend of William Shakespeare, although that is debatable.

I CAN'T HELP BUT ADD ALFRED NOYES WHERE EVER I LAND, HE IS FANTASTIC
  ~~DODIES DREAM WORLD~~
~~WHERE ANYTHING GOES, SO LONG IT'S CLEAN~~

Wizards.
By the one and only Alfred Noyes.

There's many a proud wizard in Araby and Egypt
Can read the silver writing of the stars as they run;
And many a dark gypsy, with a pheasant in his knapsack,
Has gathered more by moonshine than wiser men have won;
But I know a Wizardry
Can take a buried acorn
And whisper forests out of it, to tower against the sun.
Turkish Magician
There's many a magician in Bagdad and Benares
Can read you for a penny - what your future is to be;
And a flock of crazy prophets that by staring at a crystal
Can fill it with more fancies than there's herring in the sea;
But I know a Wizardry
Can break a freckled egg-shell
And shake a thrush out of it, in every hawthorn tree.

MerlinThere's many a crafty alchemist in Mecca and Jerusalem;
And Michael Scott and Merlin were reckoned to be wise;
But I know a wizardry
Can take a wisp of sun-fire
And round it to a planet, and roll it through the skies,
With cities, and sea ports, and little shining windows,
And hedge-rows and gardens, and loving human eyes.

"Oh wow, isn't that wonderful. I love this guy Alfred Noyes.
He writes some of the best poetry and rhymes in the world,
and I think most of them are on my websites."

     Before moving on here is the list of my websites, Due to so many requests for the sister sites, I am hoping this may help and save you having to send me emails.

I LOVE THE STRANGE POEMS AND THINGS I FIND, I AM ONE DAY GOING TO HAVE VISITED EVERY WEB-SITE (OF INTEREST) ON THE WEB, WONDERFUL.


 
  Due to the recent affairs of spending and overspending within this
wonderful collection of polititions and their abnormal expence accounts. I came across this poem, don't know who by again, but it made me laugh, as I think of today in the House of Commons.

Who Liveth So Merry



Who liveth so merry in all this land
As doth the poor widow who selleth the sand
And ever she sings as I can guess
Will you buy any sand, any sand mistress

An Armish Brooms-manThe broomsman he makes his living most sweet
With selling his brooms from street to street
Who could imagine a pleasanter thing
Than all the day long doing nothing but sing

And the chimney sweeper all the long day

He singeth and sweepeth the soot away
And when he gets home although he be weary
With his sweet wife he makes himself full merry


But the cobbler he sits and he cobbles till noon
He works at his shoes till they be done
And doth he not fear and doth he not say
For he knows that his work very soon will decay.

Here, an Amish man is making brooms.
He said he wouldn't pose for a picture,
but it was my camera and he wouldn't tell me what I could photograph.
He has it down to about 30 minutes to make a full length broom.
His brooms are beautiful, durable, and I thought, inexpensive
.


The merchantman sails across the sea

He lies at his shipboard with little ease
He's always in fear that the rock it be near
How can he be merry and be of good cheer

And the servingman waiteth from street to street
With blowing his nails and beating his feet
He serveth for forty shillings a year
How can he be merry and be of good cheer

A Merchant's Man

Who liveth so merry and be of such sport
As those that be of the poorest sort
The poorest sort whosoever they be
They gather together by one two and three

And every man shall spend his penny
Why make such a show 'mongst a great a many.
And every man shall spend his penny
Why make such a show 'mongst a great a many.



 
  THIS WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH I'M SURE, ENJOY!

Never Lie to a Woman?


A man called home to his wife and said, "Honey I have been asked to go fishing up in Canada with my boss and several of his friends. We'll be gone for a week, this is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've been wanting, so could you please pack enough clothes for a week and set out my rod and fishing box, we're leaving from the office, I will swing by the house to pick my things up. Oh! and will you please pack my new blue silk pyjamas ?"


The wife thinks this sounds a bit fishy but being the good wife she is,

 she did exactly what her husband asked.

 

The following weekend he came hom, a little tired but otherwise looking very good.

 

The wife welcomed him home and asked if he caught many fish.


He said, "Yes! lots of salmon, some bluegill, and even a few swordfish, but why didn't you pack my new blue silk pyjamas like I asked you to do?" 

 

The wife replied, " Oh but I did darling, you couldn't have looked hard enough dear."

"No darling they definitely weren't there, I looked everywhere."


"Not everywhere darling," the wife snarled.

                             " You will find them in your fishing box?..."

Don't you love the answer... ?

 I have installed on all my web sites links to India and Asia, as I have found a lot of my Viewers come from these areas, and it's wonderful to have them all. But I still give my hand to everyone in the world, so -

A short word from your Web Mistress. Dodie Milnes also known as Diddilydeedot, to her grand children and great ones. Also don't forget Seligor, the Keeper of the Castle where she lives, along with Diddilydeedot's Dreamworld, where the castle is hidden away. "I hope you all enjoy this new adventure around the Universe and maybe beyond...... who knows what magic a writer can weave on paper."

(have you ever read Weavworld, brilliant, by Clive Barker)


ImageThis photo was taken at Rhyl, One of the very few photo's I have of my mother and father together. There is my Dad, Charles Percy Milnes. Then my beautiful Mother, Dorothy Constance Gilmore, with Amy on her right, me in the pram and sister Sylvia on her left. This is the same pram that my Mum bought after the war. (Can't you tell?) It is also the pram my sister left me in when I was about three. She left me outside Woolworths, with a "For Sale" sign on my chest. Cry It appeared she didn't want me any more, now we are both over 60 and still together so I'm glad she didn't sell me. SmileHowever I did used to spend many hours lying on the "Sand Dunes", looking up at the stars and thinking about life beyond our Universe, I suppose this is why I started to write books about space and Dragons, we mustn't forget my dragons. Enjoy the video playlist below, it's very beautiful.

Oh my, I have such a varied love for so many kinds of films and
music that you will either love these or hate them. But these are
what I want to listen to whilst I am writing the stories and poems,
 so I'm afraid you will have to decide what you want to do. There

are plenty of armchairs for you to snuggle into.
Coffee and tea in
the kitchen but if you want anything stronger, then
I'm afraid y
ou will have to bring it yourself. No smoking I'm afraid, a
habit we are
pleased to say we gave up some time ago.
I am putting a few sad songs on here for you to listen to after the
kids have gone to sleep, they are just some of my collection which
I have in my music  library.

little angelTWO ANGELSlittle angel
 CherubTwo traveling angels stopped to spend the night in the home of a wealthy family.
The family was rude and refused to let the angels stay in the mansion's guest room.
Instead the angels were given a small space in the cold basement.
As they made their bed on the hard floor, the older angel saw a hole in the wall and repaired it. When the younger angel asked why, the older angel replied, "Things aren't always what they seem."

The next night the pair came to rest at the house of a very poor, but very
Angels hospitable farmer and his wife. After sharing what little food they had the couple let the angels sleep in their bed where they could have a good night's rest.
When the sun came up the next morning the angels found the farmer and his wife in tears.
Their only cow, whose milk had been their sole income, lay dead in the field.
The younger angel was infuriated and asked the older angel how could you have let this happen?

The first man had everything, yet you helped him, she accused. The second family had little but was willing to share everything, and you let the cow die. "Things aren't always what they seem," the older angel replied.

"When we stayed in the basement of the mansion, I noticed there was gold stored in that hole in the wall. Since the owner was so obsessed with greed and unwilling to share his good fortune, I sealed the wall so he wouldn't find it."


"
CherubThen last night as we slept in the farmers bed, the angel of death came for his wife. I gave him the cow instead. Things aren't always what they seem." Sometimes that is exactly what happens when things don't turn out the way they should. If you have faith, you just need to trust that every out come is always to your advantage. You just might not know it until some time later.

HE SAID SHE SAID - HE SAID SHE SAID - HE SAID - SHE SAID

Here is a little something that my daughter Donna wrote on her face book.
( donz33)


HE SAID - SHE SAID

He said to me.     What have you been doing with all the grocery money I gave you?
I said to him.       Turn sideways and look in the mirror!


He said to me..    Why don't women blink during foreplay?

I said to him.       They don't have time  

He said to me.    How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper?

I said to him.      We don't know; it has never happened.  

He said to me.   Why is it difficult to find men who are sensitive, caring and Good-  looking?

I said to him.     They already have boyfriends.

I said.               What do you call a woman who knows where her husband is every night?
He said..           A widow.

He said to me.    Why are married women heavier than single women?

I said to him.    Single women come home, see what's in the fridge, and go to bed. Married women come home, see what's in bed, and go to the fridge.

He said to me.    I don't know why you wear a bra; you've got nothing to put in it.
I said to him.    You wear pants don't you?

He said to me.   Shall we try swapping positions tonight?

She said.         That's a good idea -
                you stand by the ironing board while I sit on the sofa and fart!

 ARE YOU STILL IN THE GROOVE, I THINK I MIGHT JUST BE?

In the Groove.... Not Me Sir

The other day when I was looking through my various forums,
 I found this "
Question of the Day".


 Never shy away from forums, but don't collect them like cookies either. They can be very helpful and you can find many wonderful things searching around the net.

Only yesterday I came across a website that has not been continued, seems it died, in April 2003, I checked it out and nobody at email either.

But on the few pages there where some lovely little stories. only a few lines each, but I couldn't let them just vanish, so I have places them, with the childrens name
and the site name at my Seligor's Castle, on the
  RAINBOW LAND page.


If your new to web surfing I find it better to go into Google Images in  another window, like I did with the Rainbow Land.


Check out the images and then copy and paste into your file storage. If you don't keep an image in File storage, it will vanish.. By using two windows:- that is, right clicking your bottom info bar, select tile windows vertical or horizontal and you can work on two screens at the same time.

It usually takes me about five hours to open a new little artical like this one with back-grounds, story, article images, colours etc. It is also nice that if you are putting say a story, rhyme poem etc by say - Grimms Fairy Tales. At the bottom of the page, add a little information about the brothers or the reason for the tale, where it came from etc. It will take five hours honest. But when you go into your site after and see how lovely it looks, oh my it is so rewarding.  Goodness me , I do go on a bit don't I? But I found when I first began the web sites that I didn't know the right words, and oh my , what a lot of errors, I lost more pages than I made I thinkEmbarassed.

 Right I found this question and these where my answers, lol xxx Dodie.

A Groovy Quote:-
or stuck in a rut with a dragon!!!!!


Could this possible be the description of an old vinyl record
, as In the Groove.

Of course it could also be the grooves made by the wheels of a cart, or even a scooter, anything really that when travelling through mud forms a groove.

My friends used to call me a Groovy Chick many years before Charlotte Church was even born. I think a fair description of me now would be A Groovey Ancient Rocker. AGAR for short.

There was A Groovy Kind of Love, by Wayne Fontana and the Mind-benders . Can't remember this being a position in
The Perfume Garden, and being as it's mind bending, think I am probably past it anyway.

Then there is the Microsoft Office Groove a desktop application designed for collaboration in teams with members who are regular. Is this a groove designed especially for the Office workers who have trouble with their waterworks.

Now http://Spoken Groove.com
is more than just rock n' roll, funky white boy dancing, guitar wizardry & incredible words; it's a world where creativity is deep enough to be read, but playful and innocent enough to be fed to children. It is also a brilliant website by the way.

I think there is also a new Nokia cellphone called Groove Labyrinth doing the rounds. Don't ask me, Mobile phones and myself, operate on different wavelengths I'm afraid.

However this is the end for I really do feel like I'm stuck in the Groove at the moment and it's eleven pm and if I don't put something on one of my other websites I shall have 3 million kids thinking I've deserted them.
So this is Seligor saying ,
It's bye, bye from Seligor and bye bye from Me

"Nos Da, welti yn y bora. XXX"
(
One must remember she is Welsh you know! xxx)

This may seem a strange poem to put on a page, but I think it is a wonderful little poem and one which has been with me for many years.



 This is Magical!
I know this is a very sad poem but it actually means joy,  and  even though there was a person laid to rest in this grave. They have long departed to the place, where the winds play, and the snow lies soft upon the ground, encrusted with ice diamonds.
If it be known we are all the seasons, the perfume of the flowers and the sweet singing of the birds.
For their souls also float to their final resting  place before the sound of a new beginning.

A poem on a gravestone in an English churchyard.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
                                        Anon
That was the poem I saw on the gravestone in a very old churchyard, it is quite a lot different than the one below which Mary  Elizabeth Frye is credited with  sometime in her life. I cannot say this is or isn't true, because I feel sure the gravestone was older than the years of Ms Frye. I will just say that no matter who is acredited with the verse, both of them are beautiful in there own special way.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
 I am not there. I do not die.
by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Mary Elizabeth Frye (1905-2004) was a Baltimore housewife and florist, best known as the author of the poem "Do not stand at my grave and weep".

She was born Mary Elizabeth Clark in Dayton, Ohio, and was orphaned at the age of three. She married Claud Frye in 1927. The identity of the author of the poem was unknown until the late 1990s, when Frye revealed that she had written it. Her claim was later proven by Abigail Van Buren.
