REBLOG—ANTHROPOMORPHIC

Railroad Spring

Railroad Spring

 

Frogs frozen in clay and plaster
fired with human expressions
rest on the outside railing,

on shelves, behind glass
like angels from the past
saved for this last moment

of goodbyes, each beckoning
a memory to come alive
that was—that is everlasting.

                                        for Carol Donnell
                                              1938-2014
