"Tiny Angel" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)
This week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was "Tiny Angel."

I did a search on this and discovered it was a somber theme about the loss of a child. Instead of using the poem that Victoria uses when she makes pieces with this theme, I used words from a bereavement poem by Mary Frye.

I created this using GIMP 2.8.8.

The images are from a DuckDuckGo search.

The font is Courier New

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Mary Frye (1932)
