Salvia and Columbine

She wore her sunhat on cloudy days
She gardened in the rain
Just to watch her flowers
Drown and
wash away

She would sit for hours
In the thunder showers
Playing with the roots and the broken shoots
Singing songs with words
unsaid

The neighbors would shiver
and shake their heads
"How sad," they'd whisper,
"She just can't accept
That they are both
dead."

It makes me want to cry, too. But it is beautiful.

This really, really makes me want to cry.

Perhaps I am just in a sort of crying mood anyway today.

But it does.

I was wrapped up in the sublte intensity of this piece. The emptiness and sorrow was effectively achieved. Great poetry.
