these days have been so full
golden and cold
there are fewer pictures
than memories

naomi has the tradition of making place cards
this year we collected leaves
that were still supple
let them dry from the morning frost
and she added a name label to each

marbles and a joke book
that was daddy’s when he was little
kept us all happy
