Margaret Farquhar Cruickshank Morrison's Parents

A poem written by Margaret Morrison

May You Die Among Your Kindred

May you die among your kindred
May you rest your parting gaze
On the loved familiar faces
of your young and happy days

May the voices whose kind greeting
to your infancy was dear
pour lovingly, while life decays
their music on your ear.

May you die among your kindred
May the friends you love the best
list to your failing accents
and receive your last request

Read your muttered wishes
on your changeful features dwell
and mingle sighs of sorrow
With your faltering faint Farewell

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we have come from."
