Margaret Cubberly
Cubberly imageMargaret Cubberly this beautiful lady, my wife, has passed on, leaving Freya her daughter, and I to carry on. She was a librarian to some of the great Acadamias and a wonderful storyteller.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit From pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.[1]

Celebration of Margaret Life’s will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to Bernie Sanders, Bernie 2016, P.O. Box 905, Burlington, VT. 05402.
