‘She was like the swallows,’ she said.

‘She would return to the place of her birth,

To the house, to the street, to the city,

She loved more than life itself.’

‘Life,’ she said, ‘it got to you eventually

In spite of one’s best efforts

And best laid plans of mice and men.  

But, in time she would get back,

Back to the garden where clusters of blue Campanuala

Grew through tiny cracks in the garden wall,

Next to the garage,

Where she first played house,

And set  table,

And swept the  floor for

Her friends and dolls

Dolls long gone,

She would return with the

first swallows of  Summer

She would stand by the garage gable

and watch them rebuild their nest

She would watch them nestle and settle in

With no regrets for their long away.’
