Painted in blue,
Placed near a tombstone:

Roses

Their children left blue roses
On their dusty grave
As a sign of gratitude
For the love they gave.

Froggy on a mat of blue,
May I hop along with you,
Seeking tasty flies and such?
I would like that very much!

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall…
 
from “Mending Wall” by Robert Frost
 


unloved wall—
even the old paint
is weeping

Even a small sign
can guide a pilgrim’s footsteps
on the homeward way.
