As eighteen flags flew at half mast,
And glasses were soberly raised high The latest member was having a ball
At the golf course in the sky.

Freedom from the gravity
of the situation
The first tee shot soared through space
Bringing a wondrous, beaming smile
To a kind, down to earth face.

Surrounded by old club friends
Once thought never to be seen again
The infinity course beckoned ahead
Eighteen holes were
for mere mortal men
