Were You There
April 12, 2017
For a man digging a hole with a pick and shovel the ground is rocky and hard, and the digging tedious and wearisome, and necessary.
Two small towns were not far from the hillside. But when the coal was mined out there was no longer any reason to stay. And now only a few scattered houses still stand.
But on the hillside the cemetery remains, above the valley where the river flows quietly.
Music: “Were You There,” played on a Martin Orchestra Model Cutaway, Garageband.
