Magpie 37

Love Bird’s Companion


















Your bride gift mirror, placed with care
On the covers, close to where
Your pillowed head
Was once in bed
And I imagine you’re still there.

Take a peep into the Magpie's Nest for more stories and poems.

    It is so beautifully poignant
    I can almost ignore the limerick in it

  5. How odd that every one I have read so far (including myself) have been inspired by a mirror to write something sad.

    I wonder what that means?

  6. There is something of the Victorian poets about this. I really like it. I think it's the image of the pillowed head. Excellent.

  13. Haunting, poignant, touching,
    beautiful, well put, and look
    here world, Stafford can reach
    into his pot of poetics and bestow
    a group of lines without the humor
    usually demonstrated. Humor is
    essential in this wicked circumstance
    we call our lives, but so is heartfelt
    remembrances. Very nicely done.
