Mount Auburn

by somebody's tomb

Located on the Watertown/Cambridge line in eastern Massachusetts, Mount Auburn is the oldest landscaped cemetery in the US. It draws over 200, 000 visitors a year. Considering the prestige of many of those buried there, it is highly likely that the inhabitant of the tomb in the poem was indeed a Somebody.

__To the young, we teach too thinly the gravity of they that have built us; history. Thus, 'tis our failure to the young.

Your senryu has said this so well, Bill. _m

Thanks, Doug. Glad it works for you. (By the way, Mount Auburn is worth a visit, and it's not too far from you.)

Just a note, Bill.
__I've been there, long ago. Such historic names of Literature, Visionaries and Statesmen!
