Snowman

A graveside decoration, Wellton Memorial Cemetery, Wellton, Arizona
 


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.

Just before Christmas
a blackbird in the graveyard
sings a brand-new song.

Even the blackbird
pauses at the graveyard fence
before moving on.

A thousand windstorms
