Oliver Kite Tribute


He often went a-wandering,

His knapsack on his back,

And on T.V. we followed him

Over the beaten track.

We liked to hear his nature talks

As he walked oer wood and vale,

For there was always something new

When Ollie ‘hit the trail”.

So there beside the river,

Thro’ paths he often trod

Death bid him hit another trail

The trail of peace—and God.
