    HOME TO ROOST
    **********************

    Welcome home,
    Where they say
    No one can go

    Feeling swell...
    Peace to you,
    As well

    How we living,
    Streets of gold
    New world

    With no pining...
    Or sadness,
    Undeserved

    Going home,
    Drawn ever close
    To thee

    Light of day,
    Brighter than the stars
    We've seen

    Home to roost...
    Soul, been freed ~
    From me

    This is striking.
    It speaks of what the old folks would call Glory, in song.
    Simply and elegantly stated.

    It puts me in mind of the older ones who fought the good fight and are now Home.

    I dug it!
