I put them away with loving care,
A picture and a lock of hair.
A tender, silent funeral made
Beneath a drooping willow's shade.
And standing firm upon the sod
I said a little prayer to God.
The winters come with statley grace,
But grass and dasies come apace;
And with the spring my heart awakes
To see the lonely willow brakes,
And view a grave thats hallowed there;
A tender, unforgotten prayer.
By Willard D. Frazier
Written probably sometime in the late 1920s, up until his death. There are several other poems.
Willard died in an industrial explosion, lighting up a cigarette where he evidently shouldn't have. He left his wife of one month to mourn his untimely death.
