|The 2River View, 10.1 (2005)
|On the Morning That You'll Die *
I shall eat red cherries
The first I'll mix with bitter herbs
The last I'll join with my own blood
* Although the six lines above can of course be read as a poem, they also can be sung like a light-hearted Celtic folk song, followed by a hummed refrain of the reader's choosing, and repeated as many times as desired. A sing-a-long usually increases the experience.
