My mother, dead more than forty years,
came to the wedding in spirit
As a heavy gold necklace
And a charm bracelet
Too precious and too valuable
To risk at home
Released from the bank box
Where memories are kept
For moments like this

part of the set The Wedding Poems, in response to the dverse quadrille prompt of 11/4/19

    • I just love the quadrilles. I know a lot of people feel constrained by narrow forms, but I love playing with the language till I get it to fit.
