Campo Santo
By William H. Simpson
From “Along Old Trails”

INÉS, Anita, Tomás, José,
I sup with you, on my pilgrim way;
Craving the stillness of ’dobe walls,
And earth-floors trod by soft footfalls.
Yon campo santo is earthen, too;        5
Room in it for me, and room for you;
Little earth homes, for the weary—all
Who seek their sleep by the earthy wall.
