I had an uncle,  sweet as he could be

My dad made him the guardian of me

He’d been a fighter in the first Great War

There in the trenches on a foreign shore

Heroic Marine in the fields of France

Who was mustard-gassed while on an advance.

He was a man possessed of great intent

Disposed to say precisely what he meant

I’ll ne’er forget him or the love he gave

Values he taught me I’ll take to the grave

I wonder now if  he happens to be

A soldier in  God’s heavenly army !

 

TO MY DEAR GODFATHER, DESIRE F. VOINIER .
