It's Sweet to be Remembered

It's Sweet to Be Remembered

No one's remembered
much longer than a rock
is remembered beside the road
If he's lucky or
Some tune or harsh word
uttered in childhood
or back in the day.

Still how nice to imagine
some kid someday
picking that rock up
and holding it in his hand
Briefly before he chucks it
Deep in the woods in a sunny spot
in the tall grass.
