Lee Beaumont died at fifteen.
He played a mean guitar.
He was an excellent swimmer.
People said he would go far.

A conscientious student,
Lee would usually pull an A.
He had a lot of friends.
But now he's gone away.

I wonder what it means
To die young instead of old.
To miss the intervening years,
To lie so lovely cold.

I know to Lee himself
It's neither good nor bad,
But to those of us who loved him
It's unutterably sad.
