On the Death of a Teacher
|Music: Fugue in F Minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Now that you have entered the long silence,
Lying in state so long as I have life,
I lay my gratitude across your memory
Like flowers strewn across an open bier.
Not often does one soul ignite another
There is no gift so glowing I can give you,
