Charles Aschwanden

To my friend and brother-in-law. Charles Aschwanden who died 4/28/2009 on his motorcycle hitting a pine tree at high speed in Afton. He died like he lived. A free spirit.)

Charles was my Brother-in Law

The dangest scoundrel you ever saw.

The kind that is a dying breed

Who always had a need for speed.

*

He was always flying low,

Going faster than you’d ever know!

I guess that’s why I was so fond

Of this guy who acted like James Bond.

*

He’d give you his shirt or his last dime.

He was a legend in his time.

In Minneapolis or Saint Paul

He was the finest of them all!

*

He loved the road, He lived the ride

On snow, or street, or riverside

Wind in his face set his spirit free

He met his fate upon a tree

Doing what he loved to do!

So I’ll tip my hat to you!

*

Goodbye my friend! God bless you!
