We call it “Greenwood”

And it is



“They did a good job

Mama looked good

Se wore her blue dress”


And there’s a wood

With strong green trees

And a view


“So many flowers

So many cards

Everyone came”


A green wood filled

With the great and the small

With towers for those who stood very tall

With humble places for those

Who mattered not at all


She was laid in a satin bed

A silken pillow cradling her head

In a splendor she never enjoyed before


She was driven in a grand gray car

Grander than any other car

Than she’d ever employed before


“We found a nice little shady spot

She would have liked it there”


We call it green wood

When it’s alive



“It’ll be a nice place to visit”
