Yard at Schirmer
Age Group: Adult
Ten years before, I buried many more
of you, covered various small friends over with
dirt broken by my trowel and spoon,
in holes at the foot of a fushia-tuffed mimosa
tree in a vast green yard with yellow-leaf
shrubbery, milkweed vines enveloping
the fence which wound
round and round, a place filled with green and
summer, and leaves in autumn.
Two years ago, I buried Dryst who was
navy blue with crimson, laid him to rest
beneath a tripod of tall pine trees on campus;
he was unearthed from where
doves live and flutter, where I meditate
on life there, time to time.
Today I bury another one of you, my little
White-and-maroon speckled Neptune, small
finned friend I only had a month.
Author's Notes: A little ode to my gravedigging for past pets, small critters I've had. A Samhain gift of words, perhaps.
