Here on these familiar hills under these expansive skies and under these oak trees that he loved so much, his life has come full circle ...

“Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard”

          “The curfew tolls the knell of parting day
          The lowing herd winds slowly o’er the lea,
          The plowman homeward plods his weary way
          And leaves the world to darkness and to me.”
