Stefan's Monument.


Stefan's Monument.



Over the seas he came,
to a land where freedom reigned.
A man amongst his peers
caring, loved and desperately missed.
Teaching by virtue of talent,
Violin strings played and curled
to announce the light,
he carried in his music.
And in love he gave away
even though it be,
he was gay.
How the man who'd loved
had warmed the hearts of
desperately attentive strangers,
where poetry of golden motion
flew across the turgid ocean.
And back on terra firma,
a memorial to love and friendship,
built the happiness of children,
for time and times to come.
