"Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee"

For her homecoming, she wore flowers in her hair.
She looked beautiful, they said- her daughters put them there.
We sang her favorite hymn, with joy, in country time;
With fifty rasping voices full of artless fervor chimed
The notes of one piano, thoughtfully singing light.
We sang as one, a blessed and broken body.
                                                                    It was a rainy night.
