Thanks Ollie Harris, (Views from Mt. Waas) for sending in this fitting poem, used on the funeral program for Sam Taylor.


  By Annie Pike Greenwood

Come, lay his books and papers by,

  He shall not need them more;

The ink shall dry upon his pen,

 So, softly close the door.


His work is done; no care tonight

 His tranquil rest shall break;

Sweet dreams, and with the morning light,

 On other shores he'll wake.


We feel it, while we miss the hand

 That made us brave to bear;

Perchance in that near-touching land

  His work did wait hime there.

                                                       Thanks Ollie!
