Time Marches On

TIME MARCHES ON

Sounds of fall
heard through the crisp air;
each drum beat
brings to mind
the days of youth, long past. Cheers
rise to the heavens.

Known to most
as Mr. Baessler,
and writer
of our song,
to me he was Grandpa Keith.
His cadence lives on.

In memory of Keith Baessler,
my grandpa and the Boone Valley High School band instructor,
who wrote the “Boone Valley Fight Song”
that was played before every football game, at every pep rally, during every parade.
