After Her Mother Died - Poem by Aldo Kraas

After her mother died
They had cremated her mother
And the ashes of her mother
Had been kept inside the little box
And
At her home she kept the little box that
Contained her mother's ashes
Inside the closet

    How sad that the ashes of her Mom are stuck in a closet! Why not spread them out in nature someplace. I lost both of my parents and though neither were cremated I do know if they had been I could never ever put them on a closet shelf to be forgotten. How cruel. (Report) Reply
