May 27
Memorial day
playing "hide and seek"
among the graves

Geraniums
--lugging water to them
My mother forced--
ourΒ childish "signs of the cross"
By her parents' rest
we prayed

She-- still 13 there
rubs her tears away

Stealing flags
off other's memories
to keep them as my own

Once while hiding
a discovery
of rain-worn lamb
on mossy stone
I read--

"...Our darling girl,
1923-1925"
Never any flowers
