Crossing the Bar

Crossing the Bar
by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1889)

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

    My life is now over, please don’t weep,
    I have laid my body down in eternal sleep.
    My faith in Davey Jones I promise to keep
    Take ‘er down, take ‘er deep.

    We lost J J Norosky on June 22, 2017. A hard blow to us all because he was not only a dedicated member but also a mentor to many of our younger Caspers. His passing represents how many of us won’t liv forever except in th hearts and memories of all. Please try your level best to stay in touch and join our 2018 Casper Reunion in North Little Rock, AR, April 5-8
