four poster – July 30

7.30

four poster. tall, finialed

emblem of life and love

through our years.

 

we brought the children

forth upon you, told

stories, snuggled.

 

and now I smile when

I see you decked in

mismatched pillows

 

of our shared difference

and joys, two heads at

ease upon your breadth.
