When from hence / thou art passed

In a few hours we consign Joe’s mortal husk to the fire
still can’t believe it
but I think Joe was ready
that day
as ready as anyone ever is
(& much more ready than most of us ever are)

From an old song (a Celtic bardo):

When from thence
Thou art passed
Every night and all
To purifying Fire thou com’st at last
and Earth receive thy soul…
