Uriah Hamilton

The Garden Of My Grave - Poem by Uriah Hamilton

As a small boy,
I would dig in the earth
With my father.
For him, it was a small garden
In the heart of the city
To raise tomatoes.
For myself,
I was always digging the grave
That I desired to be buried in.

    Dear Uriah,

    This is a lovely but sad poem. The conciseness and clean lines make it easier for the reader to partake of the greater depths in the poem's heart.

    Good writing.

    Best, Hugh
