in the potter’s field
far from any beach or strand—
a widow’s keening

To submit one’s hope
to her who bore the Baby
is not a lost cause.
 
She will instruct you
in the tangled ways of love—
you have naught to fear.
 
Finding faith renewed
is the highlight of her way—
every pilgrim knows.

and the full pink moon’s blooming
cemetery blues

Who can love the stone
in memory of the one
who can love no more?
