An Autumn Burial


Blog Posted:9/23/2010 5:29:00 PM
 

A small crowd stood around the grave;

my presence being one of them.

With our heads bowed downward and our

Predominant, black and white clothes

We all resembled king penguins

in the early autumn morning.

The breeze increased and blew the brown

Dead maple leaves around our feet,

some aptly onto the casket

deep within the newly dug grave.

Other than the wind, the silence

Is deafening except for an

occasional cough from the group.

The eulogy begins “here lies ….”

    The brown dead maple leaves. It is great imagery to go with the occasion. Very nicely done, Albert. I never read a poem before on an autumn burial.

    Such a beautifully written poem about a sad event, Albert. One of our Soup members is going to his beloved lady's funeral tomorrow. I imagine this is exactly what he will experience then. Love, Carolyn
