Thick heavy drops

“A good man died today,

Not many knew,

But the word soon spread

and then they all came,

  Strangers sat silently,

Some wept openly,

And down the street,

A dog started howling;


As the afternoon lengthened,

The wind had freshened

blowing leaves off the pavement,

Soon dark clouds gathered

And thick, heavy drops fell,

As if a deep wound had opened again

And shadows loomed

so much heavier than yesterday,

A good man was gone today”
