Still Said

A gravestone lay
near burton’s bay,
dear Bob, he died,
the women cried,
old friends they sang
his bells, they rang,
on peter’s dunes,
the month of June.
Bob’s feet were stopped,
his heart was topped,
his words still said
though bob was dead.
A gravestone lay,
near burton’s bay,
there bob did lay,
in a silent way.
His words they spake
after death’s wake
into October
his words still awake.

-J.C. Hoyle
