A Poem for All Souls Day

I used this poem in a funeral sermon recently and I think it works well in our thoughts for All Souls Day...

I tremble with gratitude
for my children and their children
who take pleasure in one another.
At our dinners together, the dead
enter and pass among us
in living love and in memory.
And so the young are taught.
-- Wendell Berry in Leavings: Poems (2005)
