Oh, Fasten The Moon With A Small Pearl Hatpin - Poem by mary douglas

to my mother

breaking off pieces of the stars, she tried not to cry.
and this is for you, and half of it, for your sister.
and the night sky entirely, evening's shadows glistening after

quiet rains and letters written on snow.
oh melt into the heart we cried in turn.
oh do not leave.

she smiled and vanished into the remainder.
and this is the distance between sigh and sigh.
the reason for poetry.
