Black Angel
At 11 pm Wednesday April 13, Jezebel (gaited Foundation / Old Style Morgan) was in labor with Sjouke's (Friesian stallion) foal. At 1 am Thursday April 14, she delivered a stillborn colt.

Alleluia. Now cracks a noble heart. – Good night, sweet prince, And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!

O thou who reignest over life and death, in the courts of thy Saints grant rest unto him [her] whom thou hast removed from temporal things. And remember me also, when thou comest into thy kingdom.

Give rest, O Lord, to your handmaid, who has fallen asleep. Where the choirs of the Saints, O Lord, and of the Just, shine like the stars of heaven, give rest to thy servant who hath fallen asleep, regarding not all his / her transgressions.

Life: a shadow and a dream. Which dreams, indeed, are ambition; for the very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream. A dream itself is but a shadow.

Weeping at the grave creates the song: Alleluia. Come, enjoy rewards and crowns I have prepared for you. Thou only art immortal, who hast created and fashioned man. For out of the earth were we mortals made, and unto the earth shall we return again, as thou didst command when thou madest me, saying unto me: For earth thou art, and unto the earth shalt thou return. Whither, also, all we mortals wend our way, making of our funeral dirge the song: Alleluia.
