The Old Stone Wall.

If I should suddenly expire-

My future decides to pass me by,

Lay me beside the old stone wall

Where snowdrops clamber over all.


With me, I'll take my memories

But leave my love to you.

And though my life has fallen short

(For sadly dreams had come to nought)

I've had the countryside I love,

And animals always, by my side.

My family has made my world-

And sunshine smiled on me.

And Donald-ah, my Donald

You'll still be deep within my Soul

Where you have always been.


So when you see the old stone wall

With snowdrops at it's feet,

Don't be sad to think of me.

For though my life is over-

It really is complete.
