I Shall Not Care

When I am dead and over me bright April

Shakes out her rain-drenched hair,

DSCN6309

Though you should lean above me broken-hearted,

I shall not care.

I shall have peace, as leafy trees are peaceful

When rain bends down the bough;

And I shall be more silent and cold-hearted

Than you are now.
