on this earthwarm day in May
today, we planted periwinkle
which will take root and spread
and clad the rooty loam in green
leaves and blue florets, I think.
and one of these small plants
we dug in not too deep for
this was over sweet Calypso’s grave
and hence when green and blue
climb slowly there, we’ll think
of her quick golden heart
and stand apart and see her
looking through the leaves and smile.
