Mountain George (RIP).

Writer's Island: Season

Mountain George, at ninety-three - it's over
Over to us folks that don't understand
Underscore seasons as day turns to night
Nigh on a century for, Mountain George.

Taken before he knew we knew about...
About him living there outside the inn
In the shepherd's hut, miles from nowhere
No one comes unless the post is taken.

George, yes you will be missed by everyone
Every one of us and your friend Olive
Olya, Comrade O, made us remember
Reminding us about you, Mountain George.

George lived the life we wish we could enjoy.
Enjoy yourself in paradise now, George.
