I wrote that poem for an 18 year-old girl who had gone into her backyard to take the clothes off her mother's clothesline and a hunter mistook her for a deer and he killed her. So sad. I wrote the poem but never gave it to her parents because I didn't know them. Martha
To Those I Love
I have seen vast fields of clover
And the mountains at great height
I have loved the rivers and the trees
And Maine all snowy white...
I have seen eagles when they soar
And watched the salmon leap
I have seen deer with their fawns
As they lay down to sleep...
I have seen acres of green potatoes
And miles of golden grain
I've smelled spring's purple lilacs
And tasted summer's rain...
I have trod the path of soldiers
And seen my share of pain
I have laid my life on the line
And traveled home again
Now that my work is finished
And my life on earth is through
Just look for me beyond the stars
Because there I'll wait for you...
