Another Vet On His Way Out


Recommended Posts

Beside a Grove and Standing Down a Dale

 

For Norbert

 

The widowed vet, his vigil kept apace,

His life gradatim grinds its measured steps,

Towards that rest where smiling lies his love,

Beside a grove and standing down a dale.

 

His daughters fret so far away and pine,

His sons grim-lipped giv’n tret for wasted miles,

As measured steps descend a-down the path,

Towards that grove a-standing down that dale.

 

The maidens coo and fuss to ease his steps,

The sawbones scribble, rearrange effects,

While he continues down, a-down His path,

To rise, be raised with her, be raised by Him.
