To lose the earth you know, for
To lose the life you have, for
To leave the friends you love, for
heavenly loving and angelic fellowship
To find a land more sweet than home
and more awesome than earth.
Behold! A wind is rising and rivers
Your soul too is rising and flowing:
You are communing with the wind
and the rivers.
You, the wind and the rivers are one.
Farewell my Friend,
I have set these lyrics to music and the words are found on page 66 of my new book, "THE FIELDS SCHOOL: An African American School Without Failures." I attended this school, started by my Grandfather, the first eight years of my schooling. Check my web site to see how you can obtain an autographed copy of my book.
