TWO TINY GRAVES
Two tiny graves on a hillside bleak
On the slope of a hill by Indian Creek.
Born to a wife young, and often alone
The father a freighter and not always home.
A small fence around the graves was put
To protect from wild beasts or a careless foot.
The mother died, saving another child
The father and son left for a place, not so wild.
Years rolled by, the fence was crushed down
Rain washed the soil and bushes grew around.
After many years nothing remained to show
That two tiny graves lay, 'neath cold and snow.
Only a few oldtimers remember, from stories retold
That two little graves the ground did enfold.
No one seemed to care, 'till a new owner's wife
Felt they should be marked, to show there'd been life.
And someone to ask the Father above
To Bless two tiny angels with his everlasting love.
And may our Father in heaven Bless someone who gave heed
For two tiny babies and remembered their need.
Two children of Albert and Bertha Erdmann are interred here.
