“I’d like to try to say (in a poem)
the words I have to thank
For all that you have done
For what you have shown
who faltering in books
or bending at the waist
or tending beside the bed (as chaplains)
— we looked in your direction to see
you showing the way to a newer, brighter land.
THANK YOU Robert Drake
for your utter brilliance of mind, body, spirit-soul.
Much love, and deepest respect to you ~ “
