Ombra mai fu
Andreas Scholl Lyrics

Ombra Mai fu
Di vegetabile
Cara ed amabile
Soave più

Frondi tenere e belle
Del mio Platano amato
Per voi risplenda il Fato
Tuoni, Lampi, e Procelle
Non vi oltraggino mai la cara pace,
Ne giunga a profanarvi Austro rapace

That vision of this song at a funeral reminds me of my favorite poem by Ben Johnson (1572-1637) "The Noble Nature":

It is not growing like a tree
In bulk, doth make man better be;
Or standing long an oak, three hundred year,
To fall a log at last, dry, bald, and sere:
A lily of a day
Is fairer far in May,
Although it fall and die that night—
It was the plant and flower of Light.
In small proportions we just beauties see;
And in short measures life may perfect be.

I don't think it would be a good poem to read at the funeral of someone who died very old. But I have sent it several times to acquaintances who lost a child.
