Went to graveyard to find a poem. 
The 21st century passes nearby here so,
no peace for its occupants.
Doves call out to each other
over the drone of a council mower.
The bin,
full with dead flowers awaiting their final resting place.
Shadows stretch from tilting headstones.
A sparrow jumps from stone to stone,
unaware of their significance. 
A squirrel makes a dash for it,
the noise abates.
