My ‘promise’ ring

     TOKENS FROM THE PAST

 

Inside a box that’s tied with string,

           My promise ring.

Two locks of hair,

One dark, one fair.

The blueprint for the house we chose.

A faded rose.

Love beads of blue.

Our photos, too.

Old letters stained with tears I cried,

When our love died.

Mementoes, these.

Sad memories.

The box that looks so old

A BOX FROM YESTERDAY

 

Inside this box that looks so old . . .

       A chain of gold,

       My wedding dress,

       A small brown tress,

Favored photos, yellowed by time,

       A penciled rhyme,

       A dried bouquet,

       A rose sachet,

Bride and groom from atop my cake,

       A bell to shake,

       Rice thrown at me,

       And memory.
