whispers of the tree
bough and branch now barren be
held within its trunk towering proud and mighty tall
rings of time, seasons of winter, spring, summer and fall
its inner calling plea in resounding whispers heard
be there the known light of the Creator's Word.
In loving memory of
August 27, 1957 - December 1, 2010
