For Ross Griffin

Dear Editor:I cannot say, and I will not say That he is dead. He is just away. With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand, He has wandered into an unknown land. And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be since he lingers there. And you – O you, who the wildest yearn For the old-time step and the glad return -Think of him faring on, as dear In the love of there as the love of here; Think of him still as the same, I say; He is not dead – he is just away! James Whitcomb RileyCarry on – We miss you.Anne-Marie RosenGlenwood Springs
