In My Archaic Clothes
By Eric Davis
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 1999 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

Don't lock me up in the cold, cold coffin
In the cold, cold ground
In my archaic clothes.
Do not place my coffin in the windy hillside.
But let my ashes sail,
Sail through the stormy sea.
Let the wind blow.
Blow me far away into the sea,
Where it sings a lullaby and
Lets me sleep, sleep, sleep.
