Margaret

She died

After being so ill
For so long

After a good life

So long

Far too soon
My generation
My line
No back row now

But
What a life!

That quick tongue
That flash of the eye
That lightning striking
Smile and laugh

That fine dress
The belle of the ball

That food!!

Her quick fierce hug
That meant much more
Than any words

That suck teeth
That said it all!

That What happens in Vegas
Stays in Vegas grin

I remember her call

Quiet now
In peace
That sharp eye
And lightning wit
Amusing angels –
– Who, no doubt, do as bid…!
