Grandpa was an engineer- for MrRat

Grandpa was an engineer

Grandpa died when dad was young
And so his life was never sung
Just a shadow, spectre clear
Of a railway engineer

I have his skills but not his tales
Of life & building, open rails
Fighting turmoil, trouble, strife
Gave him meaning, took his life

When my son & I lift a weight,
Use a crowbar, set a gate
I feel his smile & sense his power
His grave will have another flower

Artist's Description

I pay my respects to my grandfather who died young of a condition that I also inherited but survived thanks to modern medicine.
I have his skills with the use of levers & leverage which my youngest has also inherited
