The rain drifts with the flow of the wind

And spreads in a sheeting fashion on the field.

That, in turn, blends with past memories

Of a younger time when youth was their shield.

 

The muted dripping echoes on the porch

As it falls from the roof to the garden below;

An unyielding garden, at this time of year,

For there is not a rose to know.

 

Sadness swells as the memories blend,

Fashioning another page for the diary of one

And we shall add this last chapter to the log

Of the Ghost-Ship passing, under a clouded sun.

 

As tiny pebbles were laid upon the gravestone

And the givers bowed their head in prayer.

No sound was heard except for the rain,

The wind, and the memories that lingered there.
