The Web Poetry Corner - Philip Claude Andermann - Re today#s Christian Funeral Service

Re today#s Christian Funeral Service

by

Philip Claude Andermann

In that Shakespeare poem "The quality of mercy is not strained" - today -
You are that unique "Monarch"
Who can fly anywhere
Without the parent around to teach -.
You reveal your deceased fatherís love and mercy
By placing your "crown"
Upon the future generation.
Buddha is behind everything,
But everything conceals Buddha.
Things are black and creatures are opaque
But to have mercy to a being
- "pray for mercy" as that poem says -
Is to render her transparent.
Even if she cannot see you.
She can follow your back in example,
Back to the freedom
Of true unstrained mercy.
