Planning what to say at a funeral can be a hard task and here is another of my favourite funeral poems. It is called Funeral Blues and will make the funeral that little bit more special.
Also feel free to browse our website for other fantastic poems for funerals.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
