When A Very Old Man Of Stroud

When a very old man of Stroud
Said, “death be not proud”,
Death replied, “you know,
We must together go,
And leave this earthly crowd”.



All around
I hear
The sound
Of birds in the graveyard near
To my home.

As I walk alone,
Through this place of bone,
A thought profound,
“Those underground
Can not hear”.
