A giant pine, magnificent and old

Stood staunch against the sky and all around

Shed beauty, grace and power.

Within its fold birds safely reared their young.

The velvet ground beneath was gentle,

and the cooling shade gave cheer to passers by.

Its towering arms a landmark stood, erect and unafraid,

As if to say, “Fear naught from life’s alarms”.

It fell one day.

Where it had dauntless stood was loneliness and void.

But men who passed paid tribute – and said,

“To know this life was good,

It left it’s mark on me. Its work stands fast”.

And so it lives. Such life no bonds can hold –

This giant pine, magnificent and old.

    Grant Family,
    I am so sad to hear your husband and father passed. Scott was my favorite teacher. My class of 1975 was the first class he taught after graduating college. I babysat for Michelle and Tracy a few times when you lived in the White House.
    May God give e you comfort during this difficult time.
