Keep the Ashes..........Quatrains

I'd like my ashes to be buried in an urn
Then packed into an antique clock,
Preferably of the Grandfather clock style
All the while in a blood relatives stock.

Yes, I'd like to have my ashes remain
Inside that friendly old clock
Chiming away the hours that I've been gone
All the while in my families heart, no crock.
