A Country Wake

Posted by

Today I traveled to a country wake
My friend’s father, a hero too, and patriarch and friend
Took his flag and a hundred dollar bill well-earned
Each foretell the twenty and one salute the guns will bark
Outside, a spring is here the robins show
Budding trees reclaim their lives anew
Inside salvation his reward, he’s paid in full
As Winter passes and breathes its last to go.
