Yesterday, I shared a poem with my neighbor, Monica. When she didn’t know the poem, I moved from her yard to my living room and retrieved my copy of LaVerne Evergreen Cemetery Tombstone Inscriptions. On page 48 is the poem “The Touch of the Master’s Hand.” Decades ago, I was challenged regarding a poem in a “cemetery book.” My response: “The ‘editor’ can add a poem if she wants to.”
This eighty-five-year-old is delighted to report receiving a beautiful email reply to this blog message. Here is my reply to her.
