Bury Me Beneath the Cedar Tree

Posted by on December 29, 2013

"The Sentinel"

Bury me greenĀ beneath the cedar tree,

the one that stands sentinel to the stream,

that I might

lie there and see

trout rising to caddis’ awkward flight,

mayflies riding the morning light,

that I might hear

the trout’s guffaw,

and the angler’s curse,

and the crow caw

his avian verse,

until such a time

that I am more earth than flesh.
