Litany

In Memory:  Francine Wiley

 

You were like the crystal

That is cracked, but kept

On display in the hutch.

 

Or, the ring with a cavity,

Revered for the diamond

That dropped and was lost.

 

You were like a fountain

Where the weary sit and think,

Though it is dry from a drought.

 

Fierce, yet fragile,

Your life broke

Irreparably.

 

Despite your flaws,

Or because of them,

We held you close.

 

We simply love you still.
