Home Place Cemetery - Poem by Barry Middleton

stashed away in a tattered file
are mental photographs I keep
for consciousness to reconcile

the ancestry of yesterday
the house itself has fallen now
but memory lifts them from decay

I look out on the silent pond
the afterglow of setting suns
across the fields and far beyond

and finally near the cemetery
I bow to honor those at rest
in whispered prayers for sanctuary
