cedar crypts

Like a cedar crypt
they lie in bags, All
their childhoods
wrapp’t amongst lavender
and dust, and
the scent of every Christmas
Each disappointment
sanitized
with the colors of quilts
The squares of each dress
every drape
all our lives

  1. GET OUT!! My grandmother made a quilt, many years ago, with that SAME OUTLINE of the girl in the bonnet! I had forgotten all about it until I saw the image you posted. Brings back good memories of being at grandma’s house.
