MEMORIAL IN FLAME, by FLORA SHUFELT RIVOLA
First Line: If I might write of you in flame
Last Line: From lost days, in an old gray sack.
If I might write of you in flame
So men might warm cold hands
Before the grate your love had lit!
But, dear, my thought now stands
Beside the table where we two
Shared heaven, alone, chilled through.
I may not capture you, indeed,
For others nor for me,
Yet in such pine cones as you brought
To fill our grate I see
A glowing heart of flame, brought back,
From lost days, in an old gray sack.
