#NationalPoetryDay – Light-hearted Poems

To celebrate National Poetry Day we’re sharing some of our more light-hearted poems that you might consider using for an ashes scattering ceremony:

We quite like this one – especially if you have opted for a scattering at sea –

I must go down to the sea again

By Spike Milligan

I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and the sky;
I left my shoes and socks there – I wonder if they’re dry?

Gaily I lived

By René Francois Regnier

Gaily I lived as ease and nature taught,
And spent my little life without a thought,
And am amazed that Death, that tyrant grim,
Should think of me, who never thought of him.
