She Said

She said

There would be flowers

In the spring

Vegetables

In the summer

And fruit

To harvest in the fall

But by winter

There was nothing at all

And she said nothing more.

This poem was about my mother who passed away in 1989.  It was published by the Wright State University magazine.
