Flowers for the Living: "When I must quit this mortal shore And mosey 'round the earth no more, Don't weep for me, don't sigh, don't sob,I may have struck a better job.Don't go and buy a large bouquet For which you'll find it hard to pay.Don't mope around afell all blue, I may be better off than you.Don't tell the folks I was a saint Or any other things I ain't.If you have fame like that to spread, Please hand it out before I'm dead.If you have roses, bless your soul, Just pin on in my buttonholeWhile I'm alive and well today Don't wait until
I've gone away.The clock of life is wound but once, And no one has the power To tell just when the hand will stop, At late or early hour.Now is the only time we own; Live, love, toil with a will; Place no faith in the morrow, for The clock may then be still."
