Edvard Munch

Sophie has asked me
to write down my last will for her.
I've called it My Exhortations.
"My dear children.
I am so afraid that in heaven

"I shall miss you who are so dear
to my heart here on earth.

"But, trusting in the Lord, I shall
beg for your souls as long as

"He grants me life."
Father walked to and fro
across the floor.

Then he sat down beside Mother
on the sofa.

They whispered to each other
and leaned against each other.

Karlemann looked at them
and wondered why
tears ran down their cheeks.

"Death and the kingdom of death
were cast in the fiery sea.

"This is another death.
Anyone not written in The Book Of Life..."
How long have you had it?
Three weeks.
