I remember the Frau
who took my order

as I stared towards
the aging cemetery

on the day after Christmas

which reeks of satiated but
disappointed children

and seasons greeting yet
to be dismantled

I should not have spoken
I should have thought instead

All seemed to be forgotten
Two days hence

I gazed
past weed-covered

ill-kept resting places
of the dead.

upwards towards
an ancient elm

Kevin - and I am saying your name with the tone and stance of Forrest Gump when he is SO happy to see Lieutenant Dan at his wedding, and now walking! And that tone and stance says I am delighted, so happy you are here and doing so well.

Love Gail
