Letter: For Mary Eshbaugh Hayes

For Mary Eshbaugh Hayes

Mary, Mary

uncontrary.

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

Aspen
