A dismal plot

The clouds are lonely just like me,

Daffodils? None do I see,

But I’m alive and they are not,

A cemetery's a dismal plot.


But let’s be gay and walk away,

Into the light of brighter day,

Lay the flowers, close the gate,

Ham sandwiches, a frugal wake.


Now laid to rest, a friend I’ve lost,

So few allowed to wave him off,

Of recent virus he’d escaped,

No sign at all, ‘twas just old age.
