    Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep by Mary Elizabeth Frye - beautiful poem

  • Cassie Kauffman

    Mary Elizabeth Frye had never written any poetry but was inspired by Margaret Schwarzkopf who had said she "never got to stand by my mother's grave and shed a tear" when her mother died in Germany. Frye found herself writting this poem down on a brown paper shopping bag.
