Poems For My Parents


In loving memory of my parents, Harold and Enola Borgh

Taking turns
Letting each other go
Only to learn again
How love grows,

love for you
became her care
until she joined you there
grief gives way to fields and wind
and now I hear your voice again

Poems published in Bell’s Letters.
