Silverfish Lichen - Poem by thomas mofford
Silverfish lichen Burma India Theologs Chapel Cemetery missionary centenary
Mouthed pipes ashes to ashes dust to dust
Opened held books Kafka-looks beetle-brows shoeboots
White shirts ties vests bodies rest backs lap lichen headstones
Mersham pipe person scans book others glare
Before sixteen TRANSIENT memorial-lichen-tombstones
Sinking dissolving fall-grass bare trees
Leonard Wood Monument granite Corinthian pillar marble Gothic tower
Bowdoin BROAD AND REVERENT SPIRIT
Oliphant Abiel Pearson Ford Martenez Draper Pratt Griffin
Parker Moore Patience Rowley 'I am the way and the light.'
Egbert Coffin Smyth Elizabeth Bradford Dwight Smyth
'I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness.'
Missionary-time-centenary seminary library Roper Rabbit Pond
Secluded-knoll missionaries walked talked
KNOWN IN MANY LANDS
Adoniram Judson Watt Mills Newall Hall Richards
' First American Society for Foreign Missions'
'Their words do follow them.'
