Infinite wisdom, instilled by Godís hand;

Caretakers even unto death, this diligent band.

Role models for man and beast alike;

Withstanding the storms of lifeís hard blows as they strike.

Marching into time with compasses provided by natureís Mother,

They band together in lifeís struggle like no other.

Some fall by the way, and just disappear into natureís whiteness.

Others survive and live on to bask in the sunís brightness.

The cycle of life travels in what seems like an endless circle of trial and error.

There are times of mirth and times of terror.

In the end, there is the final sleep;

While youth marches on, the family vigil to keep.
