Poetry from within

A Life Well Spent

The willow weeps its sad refrain

For all whose lives were lived in vain.

If I were one, then, so be it-

It matters not to me one whit.

Untouched by anger, pride, or fear

No unkind word Iíll ever hear

Content to have lived, content to die

Within this ground, at peace, I lie...

Robert Carson
