Grandfather Poem (For W. A. Fitch)
The artist never dies. . . You see them in their work
by D. A. Fitch
Learn the choices made and the price they paid. . . I feel you through my words (vision). . .
The "one", reaching out to me, then slowly turn and smile
Throughout eternity. . . The wealth of my compassion (spiritual legacy)
"Free". . . Left in the ashes of you. . . to me
I found the wealth of my humanity. . . My guides of mornings past. . . As you've given of your flowers. . .
I'm grateful at the last for our life of days and hours The artist's vision always lives. . .
I see you through your eyes (creative art) Learn the choice you made. . .
Feel the price (for liberty and freedom) paid. . .
