Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 652 (Weeds)

The grass had grown-

It certainly set the tone.


There was a time when a

crowd had come by-

But, as time passed, there

was no one left to cry.


The spot had been kept up

for so many years-

Visited often with so many tears.


Generations later, a new crowd

started to come by-

To visit their ancestors, is the

reason why.


To pull the weeds and to clean the


To bring to life what had been



To celebrate those who had lived so

long ago-

To give their final resting place, a

sudden glow.


The grass had grown-

It certainly set the tone.
