Don't Leave A Wooden Cross

Roger Gale

Don't leave a wooden cross
Nor a carved marble stone
Under these branches
I will not be alone,

The ivy covered ground
Will be my blanket
The tree roots will be found
To be my pillow and my cover.

So not a stone and not a cross
Just a simple red poppy flower
To be covered with simple moss
To last for now and forever.
