An Eulogy

An Eulogy

A Poem by Kenilo Kent
"

To my late grand father

"
What must beauty be
That spring may offer thee?
For thy lush twigs ever
That autumn has shed never!
When rivulets passes by budding may
Glidding the yellow leaflets to its bay,
Where all floras are faint in summer,
You are our shady bower!
When winter has ran rivulets due,
You are wet with sweet silver dew!
Would you never cease to merry be
And sigh a moment to nature's fee?
Nay! You are old as old a man!
RIP! Thy memoirs shall ever remain.

Quite a classic form, unexpected I must admit, but a beautiful sonnet.

A great tribute to your granddad! He would cherish this.

"Would thou never cease to merry be
And sigh a moment to nature's fee?" - These are very beautiful lines! Just great!
