Written By John P. (Rick) Boyle
Thou hast gone far beyond ~ All reach and sight..
High above the names engraved…. Amid the light..
The light stretched… From the deep edges of dark..
Into a small universe…. Where kisses spark..
Whereat fear roams the fields… Without a host…
Whilst thee stand hidden behind ~ A single post..
A post mounted…. With a black lettered sign….
Spelling thee distance… From this heart of mine..
A heart with a backbone… Carried breast high..
Rising from within my soul ~ Born not to die..
A dungeon that imprisons a drummers chorus..
Serene as a window pane.. Without aging rust..
Dark are the ravens.. Whilst faraway are their eyes..
Searching for names engraved.. Mid the maidens sighs…
