A Poem for Friday

As two of my co-bloggers on this site have academic interests in cemeteries (see: here, here, here, and here), I can't resist linking to this excellent poem (and reading) from Billy Collins, poet laureate of United States:

Cemetery Ride, by Billy Collins.

Steve, a lovely poem. Thanks for posting it. What an interesting cemetery. Is that a limestone pyramid in the background? I hope our readers don't begin to worry that this is turning into Cemetery Prof blog.
