Requiem

Under the wide and starry sky
Dig the grave and let me lie.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.

This be the verse you grave for me;
"Here he lies where he longed to be,
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill."

When responding to a post that used " sexed, " (I then used the first 3 letters; present tense) , it was changed to two asterisks. A site that cannot handle the common word for gender, when used as a reference to an original post, seems to be fearful of words.
I can never read this poem without getting teary eyed.
