Taps

By Major General Daniel Butterfield

Day is done…
Gone the sun
From the lake…
From the hills…
From the sky.
All is well…
Safely rest
God is nigh.

Fading light….
Dims the sight
And a star….
Gems the sky….
Gleaming bright
From afar….
Drawing nigh
Falls the night.

(In loving memory of my great-grandfather.)

    Beautiful post. Is that your great-grandfather? Love the picture.

  2. I love that photo. It’s amazing how well those old pics have stood the test of time.

  3. Marla, that is beautiful.
    Thank you for the comment you left. They have no idea what they did for me. There is nothing like a friend. 🙂

  4. What a photo! You’ll treasure that forever.

  5. My mother’s maiden name is Butterfield! My sister did up the family tree, I’ll have to see if a Daniel is in there!!!!!!
