For Mary Eshbaugh Hayes

Mary, Mary


Oh did your garden

sow and grow.

You loved us so, you

shone light, your light

on us ten thousand times over.

I never doubted that when I wrote

You would embrace the creative seed

gripped tightly in my hand.

Often, you were the thread across an ocean

The reason it sprouted.

You I trusted

You I trust.

May we walk in your shoes, our shoes

the way you taught us.

All my love,

Sarah A. Pletts
