A sort of epitaph

"If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone,
Nor when I'm gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known.
Weep if you must,
Parting is hell,
But life goes on,
So sing as well."

Joyce Grenfell

  1. The wonderful Joyce. One of the most underrated actors in British Thespian history.

  2. Who underrated her ? How dare they ?

    And to this poem, I say, 'Quite.'
