Swift as a pigeon's wings
The memory swings,
Back into a high vaulted past
Where silent stands
A child with a dead pigeon
In her hands.

Upon her face
A white stark flash of pain.
Because the beating of a heavy rain,
Had robbed her of a treasured friend
Whose little coral feet had clung
To her finger ladder, rung by rung.
