Waves and Ripples

Great waves
Turn to graves.
Although one may find
A ripple is left behind.

But I should not say
That waves go away
Lest I offend
Those who would pretend
That they, forever, stay.

      Thank you Lorraine.

      I live just opposite a graveyard. Its no longer used to burry the dead, although the graves are still tenanted.

      One of my favourite poems is Thomas Gray’s “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard”. So, yes I share your interest in graves.

      You also, have a lovely Saturday.

      All the best, Kevin

      Many thanks for your kind words about my poem. I am delighted you like it. Thanks also for linking to Edward Thomas. I always remember that line of his (quoted from memory, so apologies if I misquote), “nothing but the wild rain, and the thought that I shall die”. Best, Kevin
