Fenn’s father’s poem...
O’er fields of new turned sod

Communing with my God,

I tramped alone.


And in a furrow bed

I found an arrowhead

Chiseled from stone.


Then fancy fled on wings

Back to primeval things

Seeking the light.


What warrior drew the bow,

Sighted and let it go

On its last flight.


How oft this flinten head

On deadly errand sped

I do not know.


Nor will the silent flint

Reveal the slightest hint

How long ago.


Were its grim story told

What tales would it unfold,

Tales that would chill!


I know but this one thing

Beyond all questioning,

“Twas meant to kill”.


Ages have worn away,

Warriors have gone their way,

Their bones are dust.


Proof of a craftsman’s skill

Survives the ages still

Left in my trust.


Might be my favorite Chase related poem...only one that’s close for me is “the poem” ...
