September 29, 2000


the rose has fallen

lying unused upon the silent ground

its glories long remembered


no longer bold upon that charismatic lapel

no more our father protecting our land

from visions not his own


the rose has fallen

may the blooms that follow

shine as bright


and also true



In memory of Pierre Elliott Trudeau,

be he well or poor remembered.

October 19, 1919 ~ September 28,2000.

A request that those that follow be as grand

and stand also for Truth.
