May 1987


To “Opa” Hoftyzer


I saw you once

in my youth

you were old then

seated on your lawn

sharping your scythe

on an antenna anchor peg

watching you I learned

more now

than then


today you sit

on the lawn of God

in clearer, fresher life

I learn again


of love

of life

of God


soon I shall come

and sit with you

on Gods lawn

before His throne
