    MEMORIES OF A BLUE BUNGALOW

    MEMORIES OF A BLUE BUNGALOW  

     

    Blue bungalows in a row,

    or a walkup flat where the

    spiral staircase descends.

    Her memory is etched on rice paper

    and folded just so, bound with

    ribbon then hidden from view .

     

    So many summers have come and gone;

    so many so that winter hurries along.

    Diminished days followed by dark;

    still the wind carries her memory.

     

    Town houses side by side; windows

    and doors, who hides inside?

    For my eyes are dim, and my wide grin

    has been wrapped in cellophane

    and cast aside.

     

    I clutch this rusty key that once

    unlocked my heart. It bleeds its

    brown -red blood, drop by drop,

    pooling at the feet of my lifeless

    form; but still her memory lives on.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
