Frank's place (Magpie #229)






Frank's Place was a grocery store,
just up the hill from the river's shore.
Where he, the Frenchman, and Irish wife
raised their brood, lived their life--
Then the Lord, who's word they followed,
brought them home to the place most hallowed.
Of the eleven children they conceived,
Five, alone, were left bereaved.
All their children have joined them there;
At Frank's Place, the French cimetière.
