Poems from Francis Kerr Young
Parting Thoughts

In 1994 this wee iambic gem led a field of two hundred and forty-eight others to win The Minute Award, one of fifty categories run by the National Federation State Poetry Societies, Inc. in the USA.


I sleep full view in shroud and socks
inside this box
with satin trim;
so cherubim.
"He looks alive . . ." " . . . just sound asleep."
" . . . but plant him
A human trait
addressing fate.
As mourners sigh and shuffle by,
I wonder: Why
not he? Or she?
Instead of me!
