The Poems Read At
Princess Diana's Funeral

The following two poems were read at Princess Diana's funeral by her sisters.

Turn Again To Life

If I should die and leave you here awhile,

Be not like others, sore undone, who keep

Long vigils by the silent dust, and weep.

For my sake - turn again to life and smile, 

Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do

Something to comfort other hearts than thine.

Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine

And I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

- Mary Lee Hall
Read by Lady Sarah McCorquodale, eldest sister of Princess Diana at her funeral 

Poem read at Princess Diana's funeral

For Katrina's Sun Dial

Time is too slow for those who wait,

Too swift for those who fear,

Too long for those who grieve,

Too short for those who rejoice,

But for those who love, time is Eternity.

- Henry van Dyke (1852-1933)
Read by Lady Jane Fellowes at Princess Diana's funeral.
