Ode to an 18th Century Tomb

April 9, 2008

Dear Annie,

I wonder do you see your grave
Overrun with thorns, stained with aged speckles

I wonder do you feel my shivering body
Sitting on your ledge, in shadows of moonlight

I wonder do you hear the hush of wind
Wisp by your stony grave

I wonder dear, Annie
Do they remember you
