In this world, and in the next

 

Flowers I have seen and honey I have tasted,

and heard the cuckoo’s song through to the end.

Now, in this world, and in the next, dear friend,

I shall forever know that life was not wasted.

— 17th century Japanese poem

Virginia Lumsdaine McCutcheon

December 23, 1919 – June 21, 2015
