In Memoriam For Pastor Larry Allbaugh



Its the little words

that find themselves

in passage onward,

to the inwardness of the heart.

Careful of what you write on the soul

that the  Lord has given you;

as the leaves mourn you,

and grass remembers your path,

and arrange themselves,

into the most thrifty and elegant of elegies.


Stars one day must pass

into memories.

In the fall the trees allow

the moon to pass through their bareness.

For the living words you have shared

have enriched beyond

the soiling of a coin.


For the scripture within you

leans against the seasons

as the toiling of a tired planet

the schemes of man are always wanting

for a wise man teaches even in his passing.

For God expects all good things

to return to him

in which all things are completed

in both duty and unseen beauty

Lovingly perfected.

Elegant eulogies?....The grass blushes, I'm sure. :o)

Beautiful, Andrew... A truly exceptional fashioning for a man well remembered.

Comforting in its serenity.  Inspiring in its wisdom. Glorious in its eloquent robes~
