Garden

Your envelope
with the two red stamps
I would have planted in a flower-pot
had you ever sent me word

I’d have watered it
daily
then your letters
would have grown for me

Letters
beautiful and sad
and letters
that smell of you

I wish
we had done it sooner
not wait
till so late in the year.
