So long, old buddy, so long....

Carl we hardly knew ye

Tho’ we knew ye very well

You had such varied interests

Of which you always loved to tell

You loved your jazz musicians

And you loved your western art

Your thought process was beyond us

But you never played that part

You were a man well reasoned

Of great generousity

A man of great compassion

And of great integrity

Held on tight to your religion

But never were judgmental

A man of grace and logic

And yet so sentimental

Oh, Carl we hardly knew ye

I will miss you to my end

A man of wit and wisdom

A man I call my friend

I would label this one some of the best 'cowboy' type
poetry I have read. I am a fan of such, and this is a
fine tribute to "Carl."
