  • THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
    by Thelma Greene Reagan

    Today we walked where others walked
    On a lonely, windswept hill;
    Today we talked where others cried
    For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.

    Today our hearts were touched
    By graves of tiny babies;
    Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
    In the heartbreak of the ages.

    Today we saw where the grandparents lay
    In the last sleep of their time;
    Lying under the trees and clouds -
    Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

    Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
    Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
    Was it a babe, child, young or old?
    No indication could be found.

    Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
    We had been here once before
    On a day we'd all like to forget,
    But will remember forever more.

    Today we recorded for kith and kin
    The graves of ancestors past;
    To be preserved for generations hence,
    A record we hope will last.

    Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
    For stones sometimes crumble to dust
    And generations of folks yet to come
    Will be grateful for your trust.
