Comment on this article

by Mary Eliza Crane

I buried my father
down by the river
chill winter morning
stilled by my grief.

He has become myth
like famine,
like great blue heron,
who came to me here
and stayed by my side
through the months of his dying,
blown down by the wind,
browned like a leaf
to this silence.
