Hail Je­vaughn!

Jamaica Gleaner - - ARTS&EDUCATION - – Erica Brown Mar­riott

(In me­mory of the late Je­vaughn Brown – 14-year-old stu­dent of Ar­denne High School)

He who came from wa­tery womb Was claimed by wa­ter in a pool As he em­braced a charge from school Re­gard­ing com­mu­nity ser­vice.

His life with us was short, but rich And although he will be deeply missed We ap­plaud him for his self­less gift Of com­mit­ment to com­mu­nity ser­vice!

The pools of tears loved ones now shed Will hardly drown their hearts But will, in­stead, hold mem­o­ries of A youth who played his part.

All that is left for us to say Sits pen­sively – out of sight. Je­vaughn was called to travel. He has moved to ‘higher heights’

And now, the pool of wa­ter, which Con­trived to give him rest, Is look­ing on in si­lence Its face stained with re­gret.
