Several years ago, when my eldest son was in his senior year at The Cid, I
sat at a table in the mess hall with him and his buddies as they admired
their rings, which they had just received. It inspired me to write a poem
that I dedicated to two of our classmates, Tommy Taylor (a childhood friend)
and Bruce Welge, and also two guys I played football with and thought a lot
of--Skip Murphy and Joe Missar, both class of '65. All four of these great
guys died in Vietnam. John Sitton, among others, has praised the poem and
asked me to share it. AJ's judgment when it comes to poetry may be as
limited as my skills in writing it, but I've attached it here and wonder if
you can add it to my web page. Thanks.

A poem dedicated to the memories of Frank “Skip” Murphy ('65), Joe Missar ('65),
Bruce Welge ('67) and Tommy Taylor ('67)

Ring Day '95

Newly minted college rings,
Four years' labor capped with gold
Not a scratch to mar the finish
Nor a dent not from the mold

Proudly placid brows regard them
Face of youth, clean unmarked orbs
Not a line, the scar of witness
Not a trouble there foretold

At a table I survey them
Not without a pang of loss
On my hand a weathered brother
Something blurred that once was bold

Softened, rounded, smooth to touch
Blended now in faint relief
Worn and weary, time's attrition
Promises of nearer peace

Long I gaze at younger faces
Seeing now what I was then
Falling, slipping into memory
Other rings on other men

Skip and Joe and Bruce and Tommy
Who too soon in jungles lie
Wearing rings that know no aging
Newly minted when they die

A nod to life, that finite run
That fuels itself on flecks of gold
The ring! A mask of tales unwritten
Molded emblem of the soul

By John Warley, ‘67
