I will follow you whereto you roam I will follow you all the way home down the road up the hill along the river by the mill past the tin shed that old shoe store till I follow you and go no more to an open field where a path unpaved with stones unsealed leads to your grave
In the confines of the house's backyard there are no marked graves at all to see but an attempt will be made by this bard to relate according to personal memory of some creatures buried therein to be.
Over the course of many years gone by various creatures have been laid to rest in the soil of the yard's ground to comply with an improvised simple funeral blest by a short little prayer to end their quest.
There were a couple of cats it is recalled one of them was within the property born though with the other memory has stalled which is not surprising and hardly forlorn to blame or point at with a finger of scorn.
Then there were also a few local birds mainly sparrows that were regularly fed which flew all around and dropped turds being a little distressing to find any dead some due to after eating crumbs of bread.
They were preyed upon by neighbors' cats and left for dead when they were disturbed in their instinctual appetite that included rats when by humankind were scared and curbed due to their wild nature's feast so perturbed.
Then on occasion also mice would run free which were seen coming through the fence and when at times chased scurried up a tree where they would hurry to get away thence a similar burial applied if found dead hence.
It'd be so incomplete here not to mention all those spiders and insects that had died in some way or other due to a pretension that their annoying habitual nature implied to be poisoned or squashed in their stride.
They have all been buried in the backyard in various places there that are not marked laid to rest in the ground either soft or hard under where others had roamed and barked in the distant past after they were all carked. ____
