TO T.S. Eliot

Will all things be well
When roses burn,
As petals with the flames combine,
If people say there is nothing
Left to learn
And have no sense of the divine?

When this world of flame
Reaches its end
Work must be worthy of mankind
A poet whom I would gladly
Call a friend,
Has left his thoughts in
Poetry behind.

For those who seek life
Beyond our time,
Exchange of thoughts
A precious gift to leave
And yet,
Not all have a love of rhyme
A legacy that some forget.

If red roses burn
Yet all things be well,
To God’s greater glory we
Shall pray.
That Christ may know
And our many verses tell
How dearly we have loved this day!
