for Deirdre


She and I

we made angels in the snow

she burst out laughing and so did I

we were too old, of course,

for angels in the snow

but how to express

our youthful conceit

our budding life

that each was one and only

to look at us was to fall in love with us

each was each’s own religion

how could we not then

make angels in the snow?
