My Stone


By Lenny Hall

The peaceful countenance upon my face

Came with the thoughts of my resting place —

The locust trees, the peaceful shade,

Is where my final bones were laid.

The epitaph upon my stone

Was at first glance of words unknown,

But as you ponder and reflect

And see my face and voice you’ve known,

Visions appear. From marble stone,

My words praise life, not death. Be known:

All souls rejoice! Epigram: HALL-elujah!
