This Beautiful poem, oft attributed to an anonymous Native American, was actually written by Baltimore housewife Mary Frye in 1932. Mary was moved by the grief of a young Jewish woman staying with them, whose mother fell ill & died in Germany.The woman was unable to attend her mother's funeral due to rising anti-Semitic sentiment back home & was upset at not being able to visit the grave.The poem later became popular with families of servicemen killed in war, esp when no body was recovered.
