The Dowager's Question And Bequest - Poem by Bill Grace
After the first husband
The second she dearly loved
Great wealth and even a modicum of fame
Could not protect her from death's democracy
"Where do they go? "
She asked on the sunlit veranda.
A liberal seminary does not prepare for this question
Even twenty five years after the question
"They go even more deeply into our hearts because
we do not take their presence for granted."
So at last I have answered her question
Closed the debt
To the lady who more than any other
Helped discover this poet's voice.
