A LONELY GRAVEYARD
The morning was cold and bleak as I walked toward the tiny graveyard. Gray, moist clouds scudded overhead, clinging to the hills and weaving, in and out of the trees in the surrounding forest. It was the type of late autumn day when the rain-heavy skies seem to hang over you and press downward like a saturated blanket. I tugged at my jacket as I moved along, wishing I'd brought a heavier coat.
I didn't notice the stranger until I was almost to the grave. He half-turned at my approach, and seemed a little nervous, as if he were anxious to share something with me. I stopped a few steps from the granite headstone, and as if it were his cue, he began to read aloud.
