"I was concerned with the idea of the sacred and the profane. My influences were English and Italian landscape painters. The pigments I am using (and mixing all other colours from) are the colours that I painted the fireman with."
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
When you awaken in the morning's hush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
Mary E.Frye 1932
and a Translation/Traduction by/par Marion Pennell & Charles Migneault
Ne restes pas à ma tombe et ne pleures
pas sur moi.
