whenever he wandered far away
she got posies for her tresses

she gives in turn, graveside flowers

for stone cold he lay
never to warm her cheeks again
with his kisses

Blog hopping today with imaginary garden. In April we write a poem every day

Poets of April
Prompted by Susie Clevenger...I also used photos I felt worked with the quotes. You can draw inspiration from them also.
