Poem: Edward Dyson by Bellerive (Joseph Tishler)

After a lingering illness
   They lowered down
Mr. Edward Dyson,
   Of literary renown.
Rhymes and tales of
   The mines from he's pen,
And humorous prose,
   Appealed to men.
The magic of he's art
   Its influence shed,
Till advancing years
   O'er the writer sped.
He's task was done,
   He's busy life did close.
In he's sixties he sank
   Into death's repose.
A charm to the young,
   And the grey and old,
Is he's Roaring Fifties
   Of the days of gold.
