At The Funeral Of Denis O' Keeffe Poem by Francis Duggan

At The Funeral Of Denis O' Keeffe



Felix Meagher playing his fiddle at the grave of Dennis O' Keeffe a sad sight sight to see
At least anyway this is how it seemed to me
His way of farewelling his musician friend
Whose journey in life had come to an end

For everyone to life there is a last farewell
And of their deceased friends the living stories left to tell
It was Felix's way of saying to his friend Dennis goodbye
On a warm Autumn evening in Tower Hill with the sun in the sky

The speeches were made and the eulogy read
And for Dennis O' Keeffe the grave side prayers were said
And as the funeral mourners to their cars made their way
Felix Meagher for Dennis a farewell tune did play

For his musician friend who has lived his last day
Who in Tower Hill amongst friends and family lay
Together they had drunk and made merry and music they played
It is from the good times good memories are made

At The Lake School in Koroit to Tower Hill quite near
Dennis will be remembered by his friends next year
And Felix on his fiddle a tune he will play
For a deceased member whose spirit in memory with them does stay.
