1920-1991 Feb.29

The memorial stones
are viewed in words
under the sky
near Elm trees once
filled with snow
make way for branches
with a chorus of sparrows
curled with narrow bird nests
yet in their still life shadow
was Howard Nemerov
who looks through
the slushy water
through photos on your birthday
taken for us by your daughter
Dianne Arbus
the famous photographer
who rests with a bard's lover
overwhelmed by nature.
