Inquisitive athirst, rehearsed in eager earnest A guy no barrier to engagement might propound Reserve or distance to preserve a height Of fancied amplitudes

Like he was local the sort of bloke who’ll Seem ordinary anywhere there special was Embedded here he shone whole and regardless Himself he spread as easy quicksilver

Across a medley of acquaintance, the redoubt eclectic Inclusive by inquiry, warm by heart; a stout Made Northern one; gave from self out With courtesy directly

Memory holds him static young with energies Sees with the past and misses time’s vast harsh Abrasive lifelong glacial striation-cuts Thrust-loose moraines

Better remembered thus; as was a Grecian, dead, Painted in heyday on a coffin lid - hid all As though ill faults and blemishes rinsed, palliated, By one kind hand
