The Cemetery - Poem by Lyn Paul

So Peaceful here, I could sit for hours
So calm, so still, such life in these flowers
So much history, stories untold
So much sadness, never to unfold
The mourners are waiting for the families to arrive
All so quiet, only the crows appear alive

I hear a gasp as the Hearse drives through the gate
The Mourning cars to follow, they're all a little late
Cards are given out for the mourners to sign
Then we start The Walk, Just in time
We now walk, The Final farewell
To hear a story of life, a good tale to tell

    The mourners are waiting for the families to arrive...i didn't get this line, but............. no matter.

    nice rhyming. i hope the gasp wasn't from within the coffin!

    Lyn, This is a beautiful poem. The house that I grew up in was located across from a cemetery. It was often my sanctuary, and I agree they are very peaceful places, sad but peaceful. Thank you for sharing this. (Report) Reply
