him smile So let me rephrase that: Thanks for lunch!

He's talking about how he wouldn't go into (that is, be buried) a graveyard
or a cemetary with others who wish to be reunited with loved ones in
heaven, but rather into his own apple orchard - that is where he will be
buried - and feed the soil of future fruit. It expresses a naturalist's or
perhaps one might say a pagan point of view.

These poems from Master's Spoon River Anthology are all epitaphs about
everyone who lived in that town and told from each person's point of view -
how they really felt about what went on in that small town and in their own
lives, as opposed to the ad hock stuff that always gets recorded on
gravestones or said in eulogies. It's a fascinating treasure, this
collection - many of the poems are interwoven and you make the connections
to the other people in the town through them - you can recognize the
relationships if you read them all and read them randomly from time to
time. It is really a stunning piece of literature, the whole is greater
than the sum of its parts.

Mrs. Bangert,
Conrad Siever: It tell a story of a man. It tells how he lived and what he
wanted to do with his life. I thought that he was saying that he just sat
around like an apple on a tree. He sat and watched as the dayse went by and
now that he is dead he is barried under the apple tree and again he just
sits and watches the days go by.

The poem Conrad Siever was in my opinion a wonderfully written piece of
work. I enjoyed reading it. The vivid picture painted by the poet expressed
his deep love of poetry.
