readingThe Bracelet

Curling, circling wires
Frame a button round
Linked together
to loop
Look what you have found

Love and loss
Twisted in each link
Five to be precise
in secret all those years
Eyelet gown and bonnet white

A sterling grasp
Your presence felt
Two little girls will grow
Though memory they will not have
The story they will know.
