Cynthiana, Kentucky

Pop Poetry on Cemetery Landscapes:  "If tears could build a stairway" takes advantage of every opportunity to be seen in cemeteries across the land: plaques, tiles, headstones, banners, and, here, benches. In this rendition, though, the words have changed slightly, and theologically for the better: "I'd Walk Right Up to Heaven, To See You Again." There's no reference to bringing a loved one back again; that would be contravening God's will. Cherry Grove Cemetery. [2015]
