  4. 4. Greg TibertBirth Date: 25 Aug 1957 Death Date 24 May 1993<br />Call Me Away<br />I'll sit and watch those ancient trees,Those Scotch firs dark and high;I'll listen to the eerie breeze,Among their branches sigh.<br />Call me away; there's nothing here,That wins my soul to stay;Then let me leave this prospect drear,And hasten far away. To our beloved land I'll flee,Our land of thought and soul,Where I have roved so oft with thee,Beyond the world's control. <br />-- Anne Bronte<br />
