Executive Pagan

If Eddie Izzard can be an executive transvestite, I can be an executive pagan.

A very quiet Samhain

Posted by Erik on November 1, 2009

Spent time with my family, soloed Stephen Chatman’s “Remember” (from his “Two Rossetti Songs”) at our UU church’s Service of Remembrance… it’s a gorgeous setting of a poem by Christina Rossetti, poem and a link to a choral performance below.

Remember by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

REMEMBER me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go, yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

(listen)
