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
