‘Dont Quit’ by John Greenleaf Whittier.
Don’t Quit: Instruction or inner voice?
A poem pinned poignantly to his fridge.
I weighed each word, line by line.
DW had just taken his life.
Dead quiet ,
Decoupled from flesh –
Life drifts on
DW was an avid rower. His ashes greet the tide at Putney Bridge on the River Thames.
