Snowman

The time of celebration
Is quickly drawing near.
The snowman in the graveyard
Announces joy and cheer.
 
To every heart that’s grieving,
To every weeping eye,
The snowman in the graveyard
Brings good news bye and bye.

Blue Monday: Cemetery Flowers

The cemetery flowers
Are blue as blue can be,
Left by a son or daughter
In loving memory.
 
The brilliant desert sunshine,
Will fade the blue to grey,
And then the son or daughter
Will bring a new display.

At the journey’s end
one more weary soul takes flight—
autumn turns to ash.

for a daughter lost

how can she ever forget
his empty left sleeve?
