June 26th……….POEM – “Tending Their Grave” created by N. Elliott Noorlun on July 16th, 2017 on the Sunday morning of our mother’s Memorial Service. I brought tools and supplies to trim, clean and beautify Mom and Dad’s grave, as well as my elder sister, Rosemary’s grave, too.
Sunday morning worship, Upon my knees,
Tending their grave, Near shady trees.
From a choir of birds, His anthems raise,
As I give thanks, For all of their days.
Norwegian farmers, For most of their years,
Tilling His soil, Through joys or tears.
They who gave so much, With caring heart,
And now rest here together, Never to part.
I used the tool, That our daddy had made,
To trim the spot, Where they are laid.
And as we return, To everyday life,
We’ll still love this Norwegian, Husband and wife!!! ><>
