THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where others cried
For loved ones whose lives are stilled.

Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.

Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.

Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.

Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.

Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.

Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Masco: Thank you so very much for photo. I am so sorry for the delay in thanking you. I have had two back back deaths this year, out of the loop for a bit. Thank you again!

RE: fulfilling a photo request
so, regarding William Kelso, I was able to get a listing of the burials for that cemetery and when the list was made, in 1976, there was definitely a headstone for him and his wife, Matilda. I'm still on track to visit next weekend so we'll see what's there now. I'll be in touch sometime after Easter about it.
